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.

Quince

A story that will make you turn to jelly...

As yellow as sunshine and as warm as a winter fireplace... The quince isn't very pretty, but the people of Provence love it. You could even say that a passion has been born between this irregular-shaped fruit, somewhat resembling a dented, rustic pear and our lovers of jams, jellies and pastes.
