Saint-Pons Park, Marseille

Saint-Pons Park - Marseille, France
Saint-Pons Park
Route de la Sainte-Baume, Gémenos, France 13420Map
Neighborhood: Aubagne

This vast area of parkland is situated 24km east of Marseilles between the village of Gémenos and Mount Sainte-Baume, at the base of a small wooded valley. It offers many lovely walks. Take one of its many paths through crowds of beech, ash, spruce and maple trees and encounter the cool, refreshing atmosphere around the waterfall. After about twenty minutes walking, you'll come across an abbey dating back to the 12th century, which was home to a community of Cistercian monks. Concerts of religious music are now held here throughout the summer, and they're free!
