Discover this unique heritage near the second French city: Marseille. The Calanques are a mountain range that borders the Mediterranean Sea extending some 20 kilometers long and 4 kilometres wide between Marseille, Cassis and La Ciotat.

Among the Creeks wild, there are those of the Côte Bleue in the west of Marseille smaller and less spectacular than the Massif des Calanques of Marseille.
