map of Marseille (13009) and practical information

The 9th arrondissement of Marseille is part of the fifth sector of the city. It is also one of the wealthiest with the 7th and 8th arrondissements. Bordered to the west by the 8th arrondissement and to the north by the 10th and 11th, it is the largest portion of the city. It is divided into nine districts: Les Baumettes, Le Cabot, Carpiagne, La Panouse, Le Redon, Mazargues, Sainte-Marguerite, Sormiou and Vaufrèges. That of Mazargues, however, stands out thanks to its particular charm. Developed around an old village, it retains its own character and life today. Since 1911, he has enjoyed the presence of the famous obelisk that bears his name. The latter was previously located on Place Castellane. Visitors now flock to come and admire the monument which was erected in honor of the birth of the King of Rome, the son of Napoleon I. While the 9th arrondissement is on the side of the creeks – which make the reputation of the wild coasts between Marseille and Cassis -, many restaurants offer dishes concocted from seafood such as bouillabaisse and fish soup. Wild and residential, this district will offer visitors extraordinary moments.
