Transformed into a prison, the fortress hosted some famous prisoners and legendary characters. You can also enjoy a cultural weekend in Marseille to get on top of the hill that leads to Notre-Dame de la Garde, and admire the mosaics and ex-votos of the Basilica and its crypts and its 360° view over the city. Don’t miss the Palais Longchamp, a water tower which designed to celebrate the arrival of the waters of the Durance in Marseille. The aisles of the architectural neoclassical building house the Natural History Museum and Fine Arts Museum.
