Marseille City Hall

A must-see in the port area.

The Marseille city hall is another historic site which reflects the legacy of Louis XIV and the rigidity of that era's class system. This elaborate Baroque confection was built on the site of a 14th-century city hall which housed diplomatic and trade commissions and tradesmen (merchants on the ground floor, diplomats above, of course). The city hall was named the Peuget Pavillion in honor of architect Pierre Peuget, who renovated the palace in the sixteenth century, drawing on his knowledge of the luxurious villas of Paris and Genova. In the following centuries, the city hall was enlarged to host the municipal government.
