Horses for Courses in Château Gombert

If you would like a serious blast of provençal folklore, Château Gombert is hard to beat this week. Tonight the Festival of Saint Eloi (Saint Eligius in English -- the patron saint of metal-workers) kicks off at 6pm with a ceremonial parade of musicians and magnificently decorated horses. If you can't make it today to this village-like suburb to the north of Marseille, fear not: the fun continues until next Tuesday. And there's always the excellent Musée du Terroir Marseillais and an even better restaurant serving local delicacies all the year round. Click here to read more.
