Located between the Jeu de Paume and Les Arceaux, Figuerolles is one of the districts that really embodies “village life in the city”.
Nearly everyone seems to know each other! Residents, shopkeepers, and restaurateurs talk on the sidewalks, and the outdoor cafés are busy from morning to night. Young people come to spend their day there, the old folk play cards, and the workers return for lunch.
This neighbourhood, which has existed since the 19th century, consists of small buildings and individual houses, and is ideal for those who appreciate food from around the world.
Spain, Maghreb, Lebanon, Italy, France… all the cuisines of the Mediterranean are represented.
Figuerolles’s famous market, which has now moved a few streets to the Plan Cabanes neighbourhood, is still prized for its fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. It is impossible to walk around here
without doing some shopping!
Popular and lively, Figuerolles also has numerous community associations, private theatres, and of course grocery stores and food shops.
