In the historic city center, a park that unveils the ancient remains of Marseille and offers a place to relax and walk.

It was during the construction work on the Centre Bourse in 1967 that important archaeological remains were discovered. Among these ancient treasures are the ancient ramparts, the "Crinas Wall", as well as a gate of the city protected by two towers. These pink limestone ramparts were erected in the 3rd century BC.

There are also many carved stones from Saint Victor's quarry. The most remarkable of these is the paved road leading to the center of the Phocaean city which was then at the present Place de Lenche au Panier. This route came from Italy following the decumanus route which followed an East/West axis.

It is therefore a real open-air museum disguised as a park. The opportunity to immerse yourself in Marseille's life during the Roman era while enjoying a moment of relaxation just a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of the city center.
