Palais Longchamp, Marseille, France (3x3 'panorama') by 

Although I’m not the first to take this particular photo, this might be the only digital shot to weigh in at over 30 megapixels after stitching. To put that in perspective, this image would be 35" wide when printed @200dpi. This place really lifted my mood after a run-in with a pickpocket earlier in the day.

From ProvenceBeyond
The Palais Longchamp, built in 1862-69, stands at the entrance to the Longchamp park. Guarded by four stone lions, the entrance is a magnificent fountain complex, with raging bulls trying to clamber out of the top and flanked by wide stairs going up either side. This fine fountain is, in fact, a cunningly disguised water tower. The water tower and buildings that make up the Palais were built as a commemorative monument to the arrival of new canal bringing water from the Durance river. The final section of the canal passes across the Longchamp Park in a stone aqueduct.

The Fine Arts Museum is located up the stairs on the left, and the Natural History Museum is up the stairs on the right.

Stitched with hugin ; it’s free and awesome and open source and runs on Linux and stuff.
