Palais Longchamp, Marseille

(4.2/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Palais Longchamp is famous for its intricately designed architecture, accented by the garden it faces. The palace was created to celebrate the construction of the Canal de Marseille, which brought water from the Durance River to Marseille. Although the foundation stone was laid by the Duke of Orleans in 1839, the building took 30 years to complete, partly because of the enormous expense and partly because of difficulties with local regulations.

  • We have time not quite managed to run, because we were busy with the Notre Dame and co, until then but I could shoot some pictures from the very top, it's definitely worth a visit if you have time.

  • This place has a very beautiful building architecture and garden. Wish we had more time to go up the stairs to appreciate the place. Lovely walk during nice weather.  more »
  • After a hearty dinner in the old port wanted to go. All the way up the Hill, almost had to make stops at the glass of wine in the wine cellar, which fortunately here a lot. Marched through the dusty streets of the old town, the port looked at the beautiful sea views. The port city is dirty and dusty, all in stone, but this gives it its charm. The Park is an oasis in stone town, a beautiful waterfall, there are benches for relaxing greenery and flowers.
