Place ND du Mont, Marseille 5ième

Place Notre-Dame du Mont in the sixth arrondissement of Marseille is one of my favourite places for a relaxing evening meal watching the light of the setting sun change colour on the front of the church.

Brasseries and small restaurants set their tables outside for much of the year. The bars put out televisions when there's a football match to show and the quarter gets particularly noisy when OM or France are playing.

The buildings above are mostly occupied by students from the nearby arts colleges, nearby in Cours Julien there is an illuminated sign "Quartier des creatives" at the top of the staircase up from rue Saint-Ferréol.
