Photographer's Note

Today, double exception on my series on Marseille. Exit the square format and black and white! I must say that the view of the old port from the esplanade Tourette worth a panoramic photo. Especially with the last rays of the sun that bring pretty pink hues to Marseille facades.

From here, we see four emblematic places of the south bank of the Old Port: La Criée Theater, Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde basilica, St Victor Abbey and Fort St Jean. The Old Port is the center of Marseille. Housed in the old creek of Lacydon, he sees the ancient city development on its northern shore. The south shore was then occupied by quarries and cemeteries. It is on this site that will be built the powerful St Victor abbey, from the fifth century. Its northern facade, which watches over the Old Port since the eleventh century, is more reminiscent of a medieval castle than a religious building.

It has been composed of 4 photos.
