We're back in France! Someone get me a ham & cheese crepe, stat. Marseilles, France is a very old, large port town in the south of France. It was a big important trading port back in the day and has lots of cool history you can read about here.
We took the ferry out to the Chateau d'If which used to be a fortress, and later a prison on a small island off of Marseilles. It's mostly famous for being used as the setting in The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas.
To pay respect to the sailors in Marseille there is a church on the highest point of Marseille called Notre-Dame de la Garde. It is seen as the guardian and protector if the city. The inside is beautifully decorated with tributes to the sea.
