About La Vieille Charité

La Vieille Charité is a striking historical complex in the heart of Marseille’s Panier district. Originally built in the 17th century as an almshouse, it now serves as a cultural center housing museums, galleries, and research facilities. Its distinctive oval courtyard and chapel with a Baroque dome are architectural highlights, making it a key attraction for visitors interested in history, art, and architecture.

Best Time/Season to Visit:

The complex is open throughout the year, but the quieter months of late autumn and winter offer a more intimate experience for exploring the museums and galleries housed within.
