Massif de Calanques, Marseille

Calanque or calanche is known in Corsica as a geological formation in the form of a deep valley with steep sides partly sunk into the sea. The subjoined steep chalk-cliffs, also called the Massif the Calanque, are situated on the coastal strip of France between Cassis and Marseille. The rocks, which still are a witness of unspoilt nature, are 20 km long and 4 km widely and they reach their peak in the Marseilleveyre (432 m.) and Mont Puget (565 m.).

Remarkably concerning The Divine Name is that someone in the last generation of time has taken the effort to carve on the top of calanque the name of God in the hard rock.
