Address 56 Trav. de la Buzine 13011 Marseille, France

Located in the 11th arrondissement of Marseille, La Buzine is a huge residence linked to cinema and creation.

In the Saint-Menet district, La Buzine stands proudly in the place of an old bastide. In 1865, Pierre-Henri Curtil had the castle built in an eclectic style and a wing was added in 1903. It was during this period that Marcel Pagnol and his family crossed its park to go to their holiday home. The novelist bought it blindly in 1941 to set up his Cité du cinéma. But he had to sell it in 1973. The house was listed as a historical monument in 1997. Today, it is owned by the city of Marseille and houses the Maison des cinématographies de la Méditerranée.
