Palais Longchamp, Marseille

4.2
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.

  • Longchamp Palace in Marseille. The exterior is a beautiful building, and it is worth seeing. Because it is a park around, you can take a rest slowly.

  • Palace takes your breath away in first moment. Beautifull, simply astonishing. Garden so so, I was in november so really not a good time of the year and all garden atractions were folded.  more »

  • First Sunday of a month museums are free. Art was really nicely exposed. Unfortunately no English descriptions, half of the exhibition in art museum was closed. Good place to take nice pic,after few minutes - nothing to do.
  • The Parc Longchamp deserves visiting. Really enjoyed walking. Also there are two very interesting museums.
