In the mid-19th Century, Napoleon III built a magnificent palace and adjoining gardens on the Maure promontory - a section of land presented to him by the inhabitants of Marseillles. The gardens surround the Pharo Palace, and boast an incredible view of the city and its harbour. They also contain a children's play area, a merry-go-round, a refreshment stall and a monument to the victims of the sea (by André Verdilhan) opposite Fort St-Jean.
