4.1/5 based on 700+ 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 were walking from the hotel, stroll through different neighborhoods and arrived by Av. The Zoo at the entrance of the Palace. It's magnificent, really did honor water came to Marseilles via this aqueduct. Of the 19TH century. It has two museums (painfully were closed) and a zoo with statues... Its Rococo style, something Baroque, and their steps remind to any French Palace
