Penguin painting replica Grotte Cosquer

June: Marseille sees a major new

opening of a replica of the remarkable

underwater prehistoric cave known as

the Grotte Cosquer. Hosted at La Villa

Méditerranée, an ultra-contemporary

building on the old harbour, it will provide

an immersive and interactive experience

as you discover the original cave’s 500

cave paintings depicting marine animals

like penguins plus seals and what seems

to be jellyfish, and mammals that

roamed in that era. The original cave

was lived in as early as 33,000 years

ago, the actual cave is located in the

mini-fjords between Cassis and Marseille

known as the Calanques, specifically in

Triperie Calanque, near Cape Morgiou.
