Must-see places

Monuments and emblematic places… Discover all the unmissable sites to visit in Marseille to organise your discovery trip!

CANEBIERE

Canebière is of course a must-see, whether you are a local or a tourist. Nevertheless, the time when one came to La Canebière to shop is long gone. Nevertheless, it remains a must-see. The inhabitants of Marseille, as well as the tourists, crowd into the small streets in a friendly and commercial atmosphere.

OMBRIERE OF THE OLD PORT

After the extension of the quays, the new Old Port needed a strong architectural gesture. This was to be the shade structure designed by Norman Foster. Between a work of art and an urban facility, this stainless steel construction with its mirror effects has become the meeting place for stunning photos.

PLACE AUX HUILES

A few steps from the Old Port, the Place aux Huiles is an old square along a canal that used to unload barrels of oil for the soap makers. Today it is a friendly place with bars, restaurants and small pleasant shops.

SAINT-VICTOR ABBEY

Saint Victor's Abbey is one of the places not to be missed in Marseille. A visit to this building and its crypts plunges you into the city's religious past and offers a breathtaking view of the Old Port.

BASILICA OF NOTRE-DAME DE LA GARDE

The Basilica of Notre-Dame de la Garde is the city's emblem, the religious building that has shaped the landscape of Marseille. Located at the top of the hill near the Old Port, it dominates the whole city and offers an exceptional view. It is considered to watch over the city and the fishermen.

CORNICHE J.F. KENNEDY

Popular with locals and tourists alike, the Corniche offers a spectacular view of the sea, the Frioul Islands, the Château d'If, the Vallon des Auffes, villas such as the Villa Valmer or the Villa de Gaby Deslys, or the famous David which ends the avenue to the south.

VALLON DES AUFFES

The Vallon des Auffes is a small traditional fishing port where the authenticity of Marseille has been preserved. Located just off the Corniche Kennedy, between the Catalan beach and the Malmousque bay, it is one of the places not to be missed during a visit to Marseille.

FORT SAINT-NICOLAS

Fort Saint Nicolas is a military building that was used not so much to protect the city against invasions, but above all to protect itself from the people of Marseille and their independent and rebellious spirit. It faces Fort Saint Jean, located on the other side of the Old Port.

PALAIS DU PHARO

Destined to become an imperial residence, the Palais du Pharo, a magnificent Napoleonic building, is worth a visit, as much for its architecture as for its park, which offers an incredible view of the Vieux-Port and the north coast of Marseille.

LA CRIÉE THEATRE

La Criée, the emblematic theatre of the city of Marseille, has stood proudly since 1909 at the end of the Rive Neuve quay on the Vieux-Port. Before having a cultural vocation, the establishment was for several decades a market where fish was sold wholesale and "à la criée".
