  • This architectural feat, called the Villa Méditerranée, is a public building, belonging to the Regional Council of the PACA Region, destined, when it was built in 2010 to house conferences, meetings and exhibitions, the building was closed in January 2018, for safety reasons of public evacuation and waterproofing problems. The base of this building is located at a depth of 2.25 meters, under the sea, with an agora dedicated to exhibition routes intended to give everyone the keys to understanding the contemporary Mediterranean. There is also a 400-seat amphitheatre and two meeting rooms. On the ground floor, a 350 m2 atrium, allowing the projection of images on a wall 25 meters long and a café. The Villa has a 40-metre-long cantilevered advance that rises 19 metres above the 2000-square-metre basin. It contains a 760 m2 exhibition tray and a Belvedere. It was inaugurated on April 7, 2013 and opened to the public on June 14, 2013. A beautiful transformation project, in museum, is expected to be born in 2021, and would be dedicated to the Paleolithic site of the Cave Cosquer, by the implementation of a replica, and this should attract many visitors.
