Le Panier, Marseilles

Marseille

Wandering around the ‘old town’ of Le Panier in Marseilles. Le Panier is an area of the city that was once known for its large immigrant population, but is slowly becoming gentrified by young middle class families attracted to its beautiful old crumbling terraces and multicultural atmosphere…

Le Panier has a starring role in the beautiful 2004 film adaptation of Lila Says/ Lila Dit Ca all about a relationship between a Moroccan-French boy and a white- French girl: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5760h6GnuZ8]
