The northern foothills of Marseilleveyre and Saint-Cyr are a hybrid area between cliffs and suburbs. Once agricultural land and a royal retreat, modern garden cities are now being built in the middle of an exceptional natural landscape.


Getting here and regulations

The northern foothills of Marseilleveyre and Saint-Cyr ranges are in peripheral zones, whereas the natural area overlooking them is classified as part of the national park. They are open to visitors all year round, except when closed due to fire danger.

Before heading out to visit the Calanques National Park, make sure you are prepared and read about good conduct and regulations here.
