Place aux Huiles, Marseille

4.0
Located near the Old Port (Port Vieux), Place aux Huiles is situated to the west of the old canal, popularly known as the Customs Channel. The same route was followed by Honore Estienn – d’Orves and John Ballard as they allowed the galleys passage to access the arsenals. The channel was used for the transport of loaded or unloaded barrels of oil, from which it derives its name. The same channel was used mainly by soap factories prior to this. This channel was filled between 1927 and 1929. The location is rich in French heritage, and was an important point until the end of the twentieth century.

  • Very nice place, well maintained two steps from the old port. The place is cute but I prefer other more confidential place as the place of the mills

  • Very nice place in downtown lined restaurants, not all good, including streets in perpendicular, attention to the tourist traps! but the scene is still very nice.
