A symbol of Marseille, the famous "Good Mother" is the work of architect Henri Espérandieu. Perched on a rocky outcrop at the crossroads of the Roucas Blanc and Vauban neighbourhoods, this Roman-Byzantine style monument has watched over the city's inhabitants since 1864.

The bridge of Avignon
Made famous through the popular song inviting us to dance there, the four arches of the Saint-Bénezet bridge have stood on the city's left bank since 1185. Demolished repeatedly by the flooding of the Rhone, this is one of Provence's most iconic sights.
