Overview

Situated on Promenade Kennedy, opposite Boulevard des Dardanelles, this monument, reminiscent of Paris arc de triomphe was designed by architect Castel and created by sculptor Antonio Sartorio. It represents the "Gateway to the East", as Marseilles has often been named due to its geographical location, its maritime traits and the fact that it opens onto the East. It is worth noting that from here, you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Château d'If and the Frioul islands.
