Belle de Mai - Longchamp

(Duration of the tour 2h)

 

A stroll full of surprises in a still unknown district of Marseille whose city has made it its heritage and multimedia hub:

La Belle de Mai

 

It is a popular and cosmopolitan district where the old factories have been transformed into meeting places, exhibitions, skateparks, film studios, heritage preservation...

A former convent houses an artists' residence and an orchard garden.

The artist JR has left his mark on the walls of the district where one can also find magnificent frescos.

 

On the edge of the Belle de Mai, you will discover one of the most beautiful monuments of the city, built in the 19th century to celebrate the arrival of water in Marseille, the Palais Longchamp.

This majestic building and its park make it a haven for relaxation and walks sheltered from the hustle and bustle of the city.
