Presentation

Located at the extreme south-west of La Nerthe peninsula, the shelly limestone quarries (tender pink rock) in La Couronne are well known for having provided stone for Marseille constructions at different times. 
Baou Tailla means hewn cliff.

The activity of quarrymen marked the landscape around the village of La Couronne and Carro, the small port from where materials were sent to Marseille for constructions like the Vieille Charité and the town hall.
