Saint Charles Train Station Marseille
Main train station of Marseille, the Saint Charles Station is one of the first places taken by tourists.
Welcoming more than 15 million of annual passengers, the Saint Charles Station is an almost obligatory passage for a good number of tourists. With the shuttle at the bus station of Marseille, it makes it easy to connect the city-center from Marseille Provence Airport. Its huge staircase has been entitled historical monument since 1925. At a height of about 15m, it connects with its 104 steps the train station to downtown.
In 1847 the drilling of the tunnel of the Nerthe enables trains to arrive at Marseille. A year later the Saint Charles Railway Station was built by Gustave Desplaces. Its specificity is that it was built in cul-de-sac. It had at the time only a U-shaped building and a large glass roof.
A few years ago, the Saint Charles Railway Station had undergone an expansion of its northern part with the creation of the Honorat Hall where many shops and snacks now allow its many travellers to wait before the departure of their train.
