Da Martigues con amore

Classica cartolina da una cittadina deliziosa sull'Etang De Berre, con case costruite sul bordo dei canali. Viene infatti definita "la Venezia Provenzale".

 

Martigues (Occitan: Lo Martegue in classical norm, Lou Martegue in Mistralian norm) is a commune in the south-eastern part of France, to the northwest of Marseille. It is part of the Bouches-du-Rhône département and lies in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur région on the eastern end of the Canal de Caronte.

Martigues was founded by Ramon Berenguer IV, count of Provence in 1232 on the likely site of the Roman camp Maritima Avaticorum.

The charm of its canals, its docks and bridges made it "The Venice of Provence".

This is the Canal Galliffet
