The Palais du Pharo builds its imposing facade at 58 boulevard Charles Livon in Marseille.
Formerly called Tête de More, the Palais du Pharo was built around the middle of the 19th century under the order of Napoleon III. Dedicated to Empress Eugenie, the promontory was designed by architect Vaucher. After the death of Napoleon III, the Empress entrusted the management of the Palace of Pharo to the city. The residence was converted into a School of Medicine in 1904.
Today, the Palais du Pharo is a working place, hosting symposia, conventions and congresses.
Equipped with two lateral wings constituting a screen against the mistral, the structure of the Palais du Pharo recalls the plans of a seaside resort. The architecture of the building is reminiscent of Villa Eugenie in Biarritz. However, the Palais du Pharo is distinguished by its monumental design.
Visibly inspired by classical architecture, the Palais du Pharo incorporates facades pierced by bays and arched windows, decorated with garlands and a shell. The arms of the city of Marseille are visible in the tympanum of the triangular pediment.
The Palais du Pharo is bordered by a 5.7 hectare park called Émile Duclaux garden.
