La Vieille Charité
16-OCT-2008 Marisa

La Vieille Charité

Marseille (France)

Designed by Marseillais architect Pierre Puget,
the arcaded courtyard of the Centre de la Vieille Charité
wraps around Provence's most imposing baroque church.

Used variously as a barracks, a soldiers' rest home and,
later, low-cost housing for people who lost their homes during WWII,
the centre now houses the Musée d'Archéologie Mediterranéenne and the Musée des Arts Africains, Océaniens & Amérindiens, and temporary exhibitions.
