  • Few Marseille (new generation) know or we see this statue in front of which they pass however often. At the corner of the BD Voltaire and BD of liberty just opposite the ramp of access to the station Saint Charles. But on its high column you have to look up to see it... not easy when driving. It is interesting to read its history and its displacement to leave the construction of the monumental stairs of the station. Your a stop of historical contemplation

  • Passing through Marseille by bus a few times seen interesting statue-Golden Maid on a high pedestal-column. Especially effective it was in the evening light. I was extremely surprised when not found her in the list of attractions in Marseille. Although it is located literally just a few steps from the Saint-Charles train station-the oldest station of Marseille and architectural attractions. But this sculpture with history. 8 December 1854 year Pope Pius IX proclaimed the dogma of the immaculate conception of the Virgin Mary, in honor of this event in many cities have installed commemorative column. One of them became Golden Virgo in Marseille. The order instructed the young architect Henri-Jacques Jesperandjo (Henri-Jacques Espérandieu) (at that time he was about 25 years old). Statue erected on the day of the feast, 8 December 1857 year, at the end of the Athens Boulevard. In the 20-ies of XX century Colonial building the stairs leading to the Saint-Charles railway station, the monument was moved to the angle at the intersection of the Boulevard Voltaire and street Heroes, where we see her today
