Notre-Dame de la Garde

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notre-Dame_de_la_Garde

 

Notre-Dame de la Garde (literally Our Lady of the Guard), is a Catholic basilica in Marseille, France. This Neo-Byzantine church was built by the architect Henri-Jacques Espérandieu on the foundations of an ancient fort. The fort was located at the highest natural elevation in Marseille, a 149 m (490 ft) limestone outcrop on the south side of the Old Port of Marseille. It is an important local landmark and the site of a popular annual pilgrimage every year on Assumption Day, August 15.

I still want to know who thought of that shape for a bath tub ?  A bit odd to me.

 

My guess would be: it was labor-intensive, expensive, inefficient to heat water back then?

So, perhaps a smaller tub would be more efficient?

Or perhaps water in a smaller tub, with less evaporative surface area, would be less likely to cool off quickly?

 

<just guessing>
