Lonely Planet review

The colonnaded Palais de Longchamp and its spectacular fountains were constructed in the 1860s, in part to disguise a water tower at the terminus of an aqueduct from the River Durance. The northern wing houses Marseille’s oldest museum, the Musée des Beaux-Arts , undergoing renovations at research time and slated to reopen in 2013. The shaded park is one of the centre’s few green spaces, popular with local families.
