Le Panier Neighbourhood

Interesting
Presided over by the Vieille Charité, this district comprises a maze of stairways and steep streets lined with tall, brightly coloured houses which give it a real Mediterranean feel. Accessed via the Montée des Accoules, this working-class area is perfect for a leisurely stroll. Wander through the charming Place des Moulins, which has managed to keep its relaxed atmosphere despite the many art galleries, guingette-style restaurants and designer stores which have opened here.

Our reports

Le Panier, a stroll through the old Marseille

Built on the site of the ancient Greek Massalia, the Panier is a typically Mediterranean district with colour-washed facades. The historic refuge of seafarers and generations of immigrants, the Panier is a peaceful haven, still working-class.
