Presentation

Remains of a Gallo-Roman conurbation, Maritima Avaticorum.
The Tholon site is located in the city of Martigues, on the western shore of the Etang de Berre, about 1500 m north of the Caronte Channel and the Ile district, the historic center of the city.

Since 1998, research conducted by archaeologists from the town of Martigues to Tholon has explored or uncovered numerous remains and buildings buried in the ground or in the pond of Berre. These works now make it possible to reconstruct the main stages of the occupation of one of the major sites in the history and heritage of Martigues.

There are springs, cisterns, laundries and hydraulic installations (twentieth-twentieth centuries).

Free access.
