Le petit musée de Carro

Martigues - Cultural place

Two villages in one.
La Couronne has the town hall and church and Carro has the port. The beach - stretching between the two - attracts swimmers.
Past activities included stone-masonry, fishing, farming and breeding sheep.

The simple daily life of our ancestors, fishermen, stone-masons, peasants and shepherds.
We have tried to reproduce this more or less distant past for you. Research revealed objects and documents which recount the history of our villages which, after all, have very strong ties.

Individuals: free visit, no booking required.
