City of Marseille: Le Palis Longchamps

Palais Longchamp: A water reservoir of the city, whose construction was decided at the same time as the canal of Marseille in 1839.The whole construction, including the Fine Arts Museum and the Natural History Museum, designed by the architect Esperandieu, was finished in 1862.

In my opinion, this is the most beautiful and magnificent site in Marseille. This and Notre Dame, but the two are located on opposite sides of town, and so we only had time to visit this one, and not [Notre Dame].
