In this NASA’s Landsat 8 satellite image offered by Customaps, the whole city of Marseille appears is in the middle, while the Parc Naturel Régional de Camargue is on the left and the city of Toulon on the right end side on the coast. Marseille is the oldest French city, located in the south east of the country, in the Provence Alpes Cotes d’Azur region. Even though it’s the second most populated city (850,000 habitants) after Paris, its urban area is 2,5 larger than the latter. The city benefits from 2,800 of sunshine per year with 100 km² of nature. As you will have understood, one of the creators of Customaps is from Marseille (with no “s” at the end).
Marseille is a city full of art and culture and has many wonders to share with you. With its 26 centuries of history, it combines tradition and modernity. Since the dawn of its history the city has always looked outward to the Mediterranean to which it owes the myth of its own founding: the love between a Ligurian princess and a Phocean sailor. As France's chief port, sea trade has played an important part in the life of Marseille for centuries. With its 57km coastline, it is also a great favorite with fans of water sports - but not only surfers, wind-surfers and sailors flock to the city - its sun-drenched beaches also attract ordinary holidaymakers who seek nothing more energetic than a paddle. The 20 km long Calanques massif is a nature-lover's paradise. The wild beauty of these countless creeks and inlets draws hikers from all over the world.

- PEEL & STICK WALL MURALS:
Our wall murals are made of a self-adhesive thin polyester fabric material. They have the look and feel of a very thin canvas and do not require use of wallpaper paste or any extra glue for hanging. Our map murals can easily be removed, leaving no trace or sticky residue on 99% of any surface! They can be moved and re-applied over and over again, as the adhesive does not weaken or strengthen over time. Stick your map for a day – or stick it for a decade – still removes with no issues. Our material is green, nontoxic and safe. We protect them with a transparent laminate, which allows you to clean your map with a damp sponge.
Note: it is recommended to apply your wall mural on LOW or NO VOC paints.
