The "Jardin des Vestiges" (garden of the relics) was created in 1967 on remains of the ancient harbor. Part of the garden also belongs to the "Musée d'histoire de Marseille", where you can immerse yourself deeper into the history of the city. The garden is a nice place to relax just behind the Center Bourse.
The country house of the rich shipowner Joseph Borély was built in the middle of the 17th century. Today the park belongs to the city of Marseille and is divided into a French baroque style garden and an English landscape park.
