  • Beautiful edifice built by napoleon III to the Princess Eugénie, well preserved with a nice Park. This building dominates the old port of Marseille. The statue dedicated to the heroes and victims of the sea pays tribute to them.

  • Came to see the building but loved the view of the harbour even more. The building is now used for conferences. The green lawn is full of children playing and people lying around enjoying the sun. There is a small park for young children.
  • We didn't manage to go inside however the grounds are very good and the views on offer are amazing, from the sea right along the coast and into Vieux Port.
  • An unexpected lookout to the old port. Charming and relaxing.
  • Most gorgeous place in marseille! Even over the notredam!!
  • Very beautiful view of the city
