Sur les pas du GR2013 : de Port de Bouc au Ranquet

Hike - Toute l'année

From Port de Bouc, GR 2013 walks through the city towards the Domaine départemental du Castillon. Castillon is by far. Partially destroyed by fire in 2000, the field today licks his wounds.After the slaughter of the affected trees, a rehabilitation patient begins to bear fruit, and suddenly, his forty-nine hectares located in the commune of Port-de-Bouc come alive, little by little. The visitors, as the regulars have much. Their presence, particularly on the sporting course, stimulates those who apply to treat this part of the close nature of the forest of Castillon and Saint-Blaise archaeological landscape where you can visit remains: a Hellenistic enclosure wall, the foundations of a prosperous native city at the time of the peak of Massilia, as well as a medieval church and the tombs of Crusaders. With prestigious neighbours, Castillon must regain its lustre. Pine plantations sprockets and rehabilitation of vegetation through associations will be for many.

Site Archéologique de Saint-Blaise

Port de Bouc

Les fouilles entreprises par Henri Rolland en 1935 et poursuivies après sa mort, ont permis la mise au jour, de huit couches archéologiques. Un très beau rempart hellénistique (IIe siècle av. J.C.) surmonté de l'enceinte paléochrétienne, une nécropole chrétienne, les substructions de la basilique St-Vincent-d'Ugium...
La Chapelle St-Blaise est une construction romane du XIIe siècle, restaurée au XIIIe siècle et dont la façade a été refaite en 1608. Environnée de tombes médiévales, elle est précédée par les substructions d'une église du XIe siècle. Elle occupe l'emplacement de la cité de Castelveyre. Le long mur, construit en 1231 pour la protéger, clôture aujourd'hui le champ de fouilles où les ruines d'Ugium recouvrent celles de la ville antique.

Provence in a day

Less than 30 kilometres from the port of Marseille, Provence is a rich tapestry of stunning scenery and traditional art de vivre. Before continuing on your cruise, take a day to explore the many ingredients that make up the eternal Provence through three iconic towns: Aubagne, Aix-en-Provence and Les Baux-de-Provence. You'll get to see the variety of Provençal architecture condensed into a day, taste sweet and savoury local specialities and admire breath-taking landscapes the colour of Bibemus stone.

The leading lights in architecture

For your architecture-themed day, this tour will show you buildings and works designed by leading lights including Jean Nouvel, Franck Gehry, Rudy Ricciotti, Stefano Boeri, Le Corbusier, Kengo Kuma, Pouillon, Vasarely, Tadao Endo and others. It will take you to the MuCEM and its amazing footbridge before you get to visit the Villa Méditerranée that is half suspended over the Mediterranean Sea. When lunchtime arrives, we suggest you head to Le Ventre de l’Architecte (literally 'the architect's belly'!) in the Cité Radieuse designed by the great Le Corbusier. The FRAC and its fascinating façade is the next stop on the tour. The Regards de Provence Museum is an example of a very successful restoration while the luminescent modular components which make up the Fondation Vasarely are simply mesmerising. Lastly, conclude your tour at Château La Coste, where architecture meets wine.
