Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde, Marseille: 51 reviews and 110 photos
You can see this monument from all over, on its hilltop location. Walk up fro the Vieux Port (don't take a tour bus or one of the silly little toy trains) to appreciate the different parts of the city on the way.
Watch out for the Jardin P Puget with its waterfalls and monument to P Braille.
Further on, notice the Sherman tank, commemorating the Resistance uprising in 1944.
Panoramic views of the whole city from the top.
Church itself still bears scars of 1944 - bullet + shrapnel holes
Address: just east of Vieux Port
Directions: Follow the signs...
