Explore the historic Le Panier quarter, with its artsy cafes and marketplace you’ll feel right at home with the locals. In the center of the neighbourhood stands Centre de la Vieille Charité, a museum and cultural space, originally built as a charity shelter. Admission is free and there’s a variety of impressive exhibitions ranging from artists, famous authors and edgy sculptures.
Keeping to the theme of elegant architecture, Notre Dame de la Garde is well worth a visit as it's one of Marseille’s most recognized basilicas. The structure is split into two parts -- the first a low church with a crypt, and the second, a high church with a golden Virgin Mary atop. Sitting on Garde Hill, the holy figure watches over boats and fishermen as they depart for sea. Visitors come here for the stunning views and the spiritual atmosphere.
