It is connected by bridges that might recall Venice, and the coloured houses make it look like a painting. It is no coincidence that Martigues has been chosen as the place where to live by many artists, that considered this small town as a source of inspiration.
The Canal de Caronte links the city with the sea and it is the dock where the inhabitants of Marseille keep their boats. Brescon Isle is a characteristic place: it is a small fishing dock where you can enjoy the view of all the houses fronting onto a canal.
Martigues is a touristic destination and a holiday resort for French people due to its picturesque and quiet atmosphere and its postcard views. It’s so nice sitting at the table of a bar having a chat or tasting the amazing specialties of French cuisine, famous all over the world. Here, you have to taste mussels, they are cooked in many ways and are so fresh!
