Four des Navettes

The Four des Navette bakery can be found opposite the abbey. This is the oldest bakery in the city (established in 1781) and where the Saint Victor navettes (the most typical sweet pastries from Marseille) are still made and sold to this day. These boat-shaped pastries are made using traditional methods and carefully selected flour from a recipe that dates back more than 200 years, and are baked in an oven that dating back to 1781 which follows the original Roman model, giving them a totally unique flavour.

Another of their specialities is the pompe à l’huile (olive oil bread); a dessert made from flour, olive oil, sugar and orange blossom.
