Visit of the old Centre
Walk - Du 1er janvier au 31 décembre
A former centre with the first written traces dating back to the 10th century, in 966 exactly! Istres has a real historic centre, formerly fortified. This visit will allow you to discover the Musée du Vieil Istres and its largest collection of marks painted on amphorae in the world, to climb up to the lookout which overlooks the entire city of Istres and Notre Dame de Beauvoir (Church of the 12th century). The guide will explain the specificities of the habitat of the old Istres, modes of construction of houses, the history but also the legends that surround the commune.

Martigues and Marigagne by Ma Cigale est Fantastique
The towns of Marignane and Martigues, situated between land and sea, sit proudly on the banks of the étang de Berre. We have all heard of Marignane airport, but we know little about the town itself, which is an interesting place to visit. The town centre is currently being renovated. Martigues, Provence’s answer to Venice, is an island criss-crossed by canals that connect it directly to the sea. Together we will (re)discover the charms of these little-known towns.
