The neighborhood, commonly referred to as Cours Ju ‘by locals, which once housed Marseille’s outdoor wholesale markets, is now a “high place of creativity,” the magazine writes.

It stands out in particular for its walls covered with street-art frescoes but also for its vintage clothing shops, its second-hand bookstores, its old warehouses transformed into art galleries, its concert halls, as well as its streets paved and colored. It also has many bars and restaurants and a vibrant nightlife.
