Mount Puget

Mount Puget , named after the French sculptor Pierre Puget , is a mountain, part of Marseille-Cassis calanques , located south-east of Marseille . Like most Marseille mountains, it is formed from limestone .


Seaside creeks are often overlooked by tourists, but they are more interested in climbing and climbing.

A very good trail leads to the top of the mountain, so that firefighters can get everywhere should a fire start).

However, one can also climb the mountain directly, which can provide for many interesting experiences.

One of them are “stone rivers”, or collections of numerous small stones “flowing” from the mountain at angles reaching 45 degrees.

The top of the mountain is covered with eroded limestone that sticks out in many needle-like spikes.
