La Penne sur Huveaune offers a unique viewpoint on the Garlaban massif.

The major assets of its heritage are :

  • the aqueduct built in 1866,
  • the Pennelus, hollow pyramid-shaped mausoleum built during the 1st century, in which two marble sarcophagi were found. The Pennelus was probably inbuilt with the castle of the Candolle at the end of the 12th century.

The Pennelus (or Penelle), listed as historical monument, is a witness of the long history of La Penne-sur-Huveaune, whose name appeared in 1212 in the archives of the St. Victor abbey. In the old center, close to the roman monument, you can also discover the church with its stained-glass windows, whose construction began in 1711.
