About Allauch, Marseille

One of the two pretty hillside towns here (the other is Plan Cuques), Allauch is all about its countryside charm. 14 kilometers from Marseille, it’s a great place to simply walk around and take in the sites. There’s a small museum you can check out too. But the true attraction of this place is the plethora of cultural festivals and celebrations that go on throughout the year. This includes:

  • Fete de la Saint Jean: Originally a pagan summer solstice party that has changed its identity to Christian, but kept its pagan spirit. 10 days of dancing, drinking, fair and a sardine feast are the main highlights.
  • Saint Laurent Festival in August: Street markets, torchlight marches, drumming contests, water and light shows and loads of local delicacies await you in this festival.
  • December: A donkey fair, the Christmas Market, a Shepherd’s procession and the Great Supper are major crowd pullers.
  • Fete de la Saint Clair in January: Roasted pork, folk food and folk dancing, Mauret Pastorale (a Nativity play) will make you come running to Allauch.

The town’s history reflects its sprit and wit. Legend has it that a bunch of Moorish invaders who had besieged the town were gifted bread (the last of the village stock) by the gutsy but starving villagers to show that they had no dearth of resources. Disheartened by the apparent wealth of rations of Allauch (meaning a really long siege), the Moors packed up and left the city alone.
