Description

A smaller to medium size cemetery located in the periphery of Marseille on top of a hill in the area known as La Valentine. The cemetery began in 1986. It gives a strong emphasis on integration with the natural environment. A third tranche was inaugurated in 2008. Sitting on 20.5 hectares, 10 are developed. The rest is wooded with Mediterranean plants. More than 650 trees, 2,300 shrubs and 40,000 m2 of lawn embrace the natural hilly setting of the site, seeking to repeat the model of the village cemetery with shaded plots. This secular cemetery has the particularity of having a Square of Angels which designates a space intended for the graves of children who were stillborn. The architectural quality, the technical successes and the care given to nature are quite remarkable. It is open every day from 7:30 in the morning until 6 in the evening from March to October and from 7:30 in the morning until 5:30 in the evening from November to February.
