A gateway to the Mediterranean: the Vieux-Port
Marseille’s Vieux-Port is the real symbol of the town and a logical venue in the movie Stillwater featuring Matt Damon. An important stronghold of the Mediterranean town, it opens onto the Mediterranean Sea from the point of Fort Saint-Jean. The buildings which surround it echo the town’s influence on 19th century maritime trade. The Vieux-Port is the perfect place to eat fresh seafood, in one of the many restaurants it houses or from its famous fish market.
