Miroir aux oiseaux and St Sébastien canal

Martigues - Site

The area including the Canal St Sébastien, the Miroir aux Oiseaux and the Quai Brescon was listed in 1942.
This strip of sea straddled by the Pont Saint Sébastien and the line of colourful fishermen's houses with random heights has fascinated numerous painters since the end of the 19th century including Delacroix, Corot, Loubon, Ziem and Dufy.
