Guided hike, 8 km in the city center, on the theme of water, fountains, washhouses and wells.
Martigues is a city surrounded by water which was its main wealth for many centuries, but this water is salty.
The city has long had a shortage of fresh water.
We will discover the history of the different water points: fountains, washhouses, wells and aqueducts.

Practical information: Bring comfortable shoes, hat, sunscreen and bottle of water. No refund will be granted to the late client. For your convenience, we advise you to arrive approximately 15 minutes before the start of the tour.

By booking my visit online, I agree to respect the health measures put in place by the Tourist Office and the organizing association.
