Presentation

Pointe San Christ extends the ancient town of Martigues to the west.
Pointe de l'Île is an artificial peninsula built from 2009 to 2010, measuring 130 m long and 30 m wide. The architect of this project is Gilles Amphoux.
It is a magnificent site fitted out with water jets and fountains conducive to relaxation and strolling.
You will also be able to contemplate the giant sculpture of Bernar Venet which sits as a figurehead towards the viaduct. Named “219.5 ° Arc x 15”, it was installed in 2019.
The last cities to have been able to exhibit such pieces are none other than New York, San Francisco, Beijing, Berlin, Paris or even Tokyo.
