In Marseille, a replica of the Cosquer cave takes shape

The Villa Méditerranée in Marseille will host a replica of the Cosquer cave.

Marseille will soon welcome a reproduction of the Cosquer cave in the Villa Méditerranée, just next to the Mucem. The Cosquer cave is this partially drowned cave discovered in 1985 by Henri Cosquer, a professional diver, near the city of Cassis, a stone’s throw from Marseille. It is adorned with more than 500 elements of cave art. Report by Yoram Melloul.
