We walked out here from the Old Port - it took us about half an hour, but you could get a tram. Palais Longchamp is an impressive monument to water, dating from the 1860s, at a time of the construction of canals and aqueducts. Part...More

I was mesmerized at this beautiful palace! It was like visiting a fantasy place. The structure , the facade and the landscape was marvelous! Even though, the fountain was not functioning, it's a must- see masterpiece!
