Martigues

Famous for its flowers and gardens, Martigues is situated on the side of a lake, the "étang de Berre", and linked to the sea by the Caronte channel.

Although the village has recently undergone rapid industrial expansion, this economic development has not destroyed its tourist attractions.


Martigues - Marina


Due to the charm of its canals, islands and bridges, Martigues is also known as the Venise provençale...

So take the time to wander along the quays, particularly in the "quartier des pêcheurs" around the canal Saint-Sébastien.


Martigues - The Canal

This quarter is called le miroir aux oiseaux and back in the 17th century, fishermen used to live in the colourful old houses lining the banks of the canal.

These houses have inspired a number of painters, including Duffy ou Ziem. The area has also been made famous by the film La cuisine au beurre with Bourvil and Fernandel.


Visitors will appreciate the beautiful beach of La Couronne and be captivitated by the tiny port de Carro, the charming fishing port and marina - all sheltered from the Mistral.



What to see:

17th century church of the Madeleine. 17th century church Saint-Genest.
Chapel of the Annonciade des pénitents blancs
La maison du chapeau de gendarme (so-called because of the shape of its roof).
The village gaulois (archeological window from the 5th century BC).
Ziem museum (archeology, contemporary art, contemporary and impressionist paintings).



Leisure activities:

Swimming pool, tennis, water sports.
Walks around the canals and sea excursions.
Hiking and mountain biking (maps available with signposted routes).
