Marseilles, from antiquity to the 3rd millenary
Marseilles represent 2600 years of history! It is the marvellous harbour chosen by the Greeks, its islands and the Château d'If. It's oriental dreams; it's the Good Mother who watches over it, it's the old port and its riggings. It is a crossroads of exchanges, the town of Mucem, at the gateway to Mediterranean sea.
