Marazion is actually a very old village, dating back in records to at least 1070. The name comes from "Marghas Byghan" or "small market". There were originally two markets, Marghas Byghan and Marghas Yow (or Jew - "thursday market"). In time, Penzance took over as the main market centre, with its better harbour, and the main street is still called Market Jew Street after "marghas yow". Today, Marazion is better known for its beach and as the gateway to St Michael's Mount.
