Derrière l'Hôtel de Ville Vieux Port 13002 Marseille 2ème
The present site of the Town Hall was occupied in the 13th century by the Maison de Ville, which brought together merchants and consuls, and in the 15th century by the Palais Communal.
But it was not until the 17th century that the Town Hall was built. It symbolizes the new political status of the city ordered by Louis XIV, who imposed the management of the city by aldermen and changed the port regime. Attributed to Mathieu Portal and Gaspard Puget, this beautiful baroque building also owes much to Pierre Puget, a Marseille architect. Its particularity was to voluntarily separate the merchants on the first floor from the aldermen on the second floor.
