Escalier de la Gare Sainte-Charles

ADD TO MY TRIP

cultured

Either when arriving to or leaving Marseille, take a breath, rest and take in the site of this epic stairway. The 104 steps, along with the several sculptures incorporated with it, is a historical, cultural, architectural and artistic setting to take some time with. The sculptures echo with allegories; depictions of hunting, fishing, & harvesting; and references to the Marseille connection to African & Middle-Eastern French colonies of the past.
