Martigues is a commune northwest of Marseille. It is part of the Bouches-du-Rhône department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region on the eastern end of the Canal de Caronte.A direct translation from the Martigues Tourisme Website reveals the following about Martigues: Nicknamed the "Provençale Venice", Martigues is a point of passage between the Mediterranean Sea and the Sea of Martigues, close to the Côte d'Azur. The charm of its canals, its docks and bridges made it "The Venice of Provence". Martigues possesses also its cooperative winery "La Venise provençale": Coteaux d'Aix en Provence, rosé, red and white wines, fruit juices and natural oils in the region. Main varietals: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Clairette.HistoryMartigues was founded by Ramon Berenguer IV, count of Provence in 1232 on the likely site of the Roman camp Maritima Avaticorum.PolicyGaby Charroux, deputy Mayor of the City of Martigues was born June 25, 1942 in Alger. On 29 May 2009 he succeeded Paul Lombard, Mayor resigned, and has since committed to continue the work for the future of Martigues. For him, being elected is "work, work, again and again" in order to improve the lives of the governed and to serve the general interest.
