Martigues, France

Martigues is a commune northwest of Marseille. It is part of the Bouches-du-Rhône department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region on the eastern end of the Canal de Caronte. The charm of its canals, its docks and bridges has given it the nickname "The Venice of Provence".

Martigues is a mixture of narrow streets, pedestrian walkways and shopping areas. It features an eclectic collection of shops and markets accented by a drawbridge, beach area and some excellent cafés. There are three parts to Martigues: L'Isle, Jonquières and Ferrières. L'Isle is more picturesque than Ferrières, and Jonquières has the best collection of shops and markets. Each of the three parts is accented by its own steeple.
