In 1967, following construction in the center of Marseille, several ancient archeological remains were unearthed. Today, these historical ruins are now part of a landscaped garden, sitting in the heart of a modern day city.
Created by Joël-Louis Martin, a renowned landscape architect, Le Jardin des Vestiges (or Garden of Vestiges), is part of the Museum of Marseille. Discovered during construction of a would-be shopping center, the ancient ruins belong to an old Greek port that dates back to the Roman Empire.
