Saint-Pierre Cemetery is the great historic cemetery of Marseille. Located in the heart of the Phocaean city, Saint-Pierre has been going through the life of all Marseille residents for over 150 years with its monumental tombs and Mediterranean pine forests. It is also a city within a city. Trades are practiced, the curious walk there, others come to pay homage to a man or a woman they admire.
It is a place where stories are at the corners of every aisle, behind every grave, where time passes slowly, in a cozy atmosphere, far from the hustle and bustle of Marseille. The Saint-Pierre cemetery is a place of life.
