Marseille, a port city in the south of France, has been a crossroads of trade and immigration since its foundation by the Greeks around 600 BC. At its heart is the Old Port where fishermen sell their catch on the quayside lined with boats. The Basilica of Our Lady of the Guard is a Romanesque church of Byzantine inspiration. Modern buildings include the Cité Radieuse, a housing unit designed by Le Corbusier and the CMA CGM Tower in Zaha Hadid.
Marseille is the second-largest city of France. The main city of the historical province of Provence, it is the prefecture of the department of Bouches-du-Rhône and region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. It is located on the Mediterranean coast near the mouth of the Rhône. The city covers an area of 241 km2 (93 sq mi) and had a population of 852,516 in 2012. Its metropolitan area, which extends over 3,173 km2 (1,225 sq mi) is the third-largest in France after Paris and Lyon, with a population of 1,831,500 as of 2010.
Known to the ancient Greeks and Romans as Massalia (Greek: Μασσαλία, romanized: Massalía), Marseille was an important European trading centre and remains the main commercial port of the French Republic. Marseille is now France's largest city on the Mediterranean coast and the largest port for commerce, freight and cruise ships. The city was European Capital of Culture in 2013 and European Capital of Sport in 2017; it hosted matches at the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2016. It is home to Aix-Marseille University.
