La Ciotat

La Ciotat
The Essential
"La Cité" has changed a lot since it lost its shipbuilding vocation. It has managed to make the most of its assets: beaches, marine park and lively fishing port. The re-opening of the Éden Théâtre is a reminder that this town has always drawn creatives: Louis Lumière turned his cinematograph on La Ciotat, immortalising the railway station in Arrival of a Train. As for Jules Lenoir, probably less well known, he invented the game of petanque here!
