Situated 17 km from Marseille on the Marseille-Toulon motorway, Aubagne is dominated by the Garlaban massif where the childhood memories of Marcel Pagnol, whose birthplace it is, still resound. Its old city has kept all its charm of yesteryear with its pedestrian streets and old access gates such as the Gachiou gate. Dating from the end of the Roman occupation, it is nowadays the oldest vestige of Aubagne. Now famous for its pottery, Aubagne hosts the famous Argila fair which takes place every two years. Great novelty in 2019, the new GR du Pays d'Aubagne, called Sentier Provence, Mines d'Énergies. 14 communes are crossed, for original walks in the heart of the mining basin of Provence, positioning Aubagne as a destination to be privileged for hiking stays.

Also much awaited this year in Aubagne :

- The 1895 Festival, a tribute to Marcel Pagnol (in May)

- The Juan Carmona Festival (first weekend of July)

- The Culinary Tent (3rd weekend of September)

- The Grain de sel Children's Book Festival (November)

- The Aubagne International Film Festival (March)
