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

FORT SAINT-JEAN

Fort Saint-Jean marks the entrance to the Old Port and offers an exceptional view of the city. It is now part of the MuCEM, to which it is linked by an imposing ultra-modern footbridge overlooking the sea.

MUCEM

The Mucem is an exceptional jewel with a unique architecture. More than a museum, the Mucem is an emblematic site symbolising the marriage of Marseilles and the Mediterranean, and is a source of pride for the inhabitants.

OLD CHARITY

The Vieille Charité, which was once a place of refuge for the city's poor and beggars, is naturally located in the heart of the Panier district, the city's historic centre. This emblematic place of Old Marseille now houses a real cultural centre.

PANIER DISTRICT

Le Panier is located on a hillock in the centre of Marseille, its narrow streets intertwine and lead to pleasant squares. Being in Le Panier is like being in a charming Provencal village and forgetting that you are in the centre of Marseille.

CATHEDRAL OF LA MAJOR

The Cathedral of Sainte-Marie-Majeure, known as the Cathedral of La Major by the people of Marseille, is one of the emblems of Marseille because it is unique and represents the power of the city. Today, you can't visit Marseille without marvelling at La Major.

CONSIGNES SANITAIRES (FORMER CUSTOMS)

The Consignes Sanitaires building, built in 1719 by the architect Mazin, was constructed to house the doctors and surgeons responsible for the sanitary control of sailors and ships entering the port of Marseille. It was the headquarters of the sanitary intendance until the 19th century, when the customs building was built identically.

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.
