Marseille France Tourist Information and Travel Guide
The Joliette Docks in Marseille France (Les Docks) were once the largest docks in Europe. Located just north of Marseille's cathedral (Cathédrale de la Major), the docks were the engine of Marseille's wealth during the 19th century.
A redevelopment project is underway to revitalize the area around the docks and address poverty and crime issues that have plagued the area.
The Joliette Docks can be found in Marseille's 2nd Arrondissement.
