Le Fort Saint Jean a été édifié pour défendre le port de Marseille. Il servit également de commanderie aux Templiers durant les Croisades.

Establishment
“C’est celui qui est à gauche lorsqu’on fait face au Vieux Port. Le Fort Saint Nicolas est un édifice militaire servant non pas tant à protéger la ville contre les invasions, mais surtout à se protéger des marseillais et de leur esprit indépendant et rebelle.”

Church
“If you come in Marseille you have to get there ! Notre dame de la Garde is a church dedicated to Marie which is on the top of a higher mount in Marseille. From a Christian site, it has become for all Marseille inhabitants, a kind of symbol of the city whatever religion they follow, if ever they follow one. Most important, from its foot you can see a panorama of all the city, it is really wonderful. You can get there by car, bus, touristic train, taxi , but remember that the last hundred meters have to be walked on foot and to make a wish once up there ! ”
