The city of Marseille is the second largest city in France after Paris. Marseille offers many advantages to visitors who venture there. They will certainly appreciate the cultural mix that reigns in the Phocaean city.
2600 years of history, a heritage that cannot be ignored, jealously guarded traditions and recipes handed down from generation to generation.
The Basilica of Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde, often nicknamed "the Good Mother", is one of the minor basilicas of the Roman Catholic Church. It is built on a limestone hill 149 metres above sea level, raised 13 metres by the walls and foundations of an old fort.
Visit it and admire the panorama from the top of the hill.
A unique view of the city, the Old Port, the Panier district, the islands of Frioul and If, the north of
Marseille, the beach areas and the hills surrounding Marseille.
