In the creeks of Marseille...
The Cosquer cave located in the creeks of Marseille at Cape Morgiou bears the name of its discoverer, the diver Henri Cosquer. Officially declared in 1991, it was classified as a historical monument the same year.
Accessible only through a 175-metre long tunnel whose entrance is 37 metres below sea level, it is unique in the world and houses dozens of painted and engraved works.
There are two main periods of human use of the cave: the first around 33,000 years ago, the second around 19,000 years ago.
