Today was a rainy and windy day. So I only did some “indoor” sightseeing.
The Notre Dame de la Garde is a Byzatine basilica in Marseille and is situated on a 162 m high hill, the highest point in Marseille. On the top of the basilica you can see the gilded statue of Virgin Mary.
The basilica also gives you a wonderful 360° panorama view of Marseille.
Later I visited the City Hall of Marseille. By the way, yesterday and today was the “Journées Européennes du Patrimoine” with extraordinary and/or free openings of some places. Some places only opens at these days. So it’s always a good idea to visit Marseille on these days.
