History and urbanism
As the Capital of Provence, Aix-en-Provence is a town for all ages! In ancient times, it was famous for the Thermes de Sextius (thermal springs) in the heart of the old town. But its history also includes the Mazarin Quarter with its broad, shaded avenues and private mansions. Not forgetting the Cours Mirabeau, the town’s main street, built in the 17th century and the pride and joy of the Aixois people!
You simply have to take a stroll down the legendary Cours Mirabeau! Synonymous with the town, it is where everyone meets – especially those keen on shopping. Unless you prefer to explore the little squares and famous fountains. Legend has it that there were over 100 – see if you can find them all! And why not make the most of your family weekend in Aix-en-Provence and walk to the foot of Mount Sainte-Victoire ?
Where would Aix be without its artists? At the top, Cézanne, who made his name here and whose studio you can visit. Whilst at the Granet Museum, you can find some of the best paintings from the Impressionist movement. For those who appreciate good stonework, push open the door of Saint-Jean-de-Malte church or Saint-Sauveur Cathedral, two architectural masterpieces !
Aix-en-Provence never stops moving to the tune of cultural events, all year round! From the Santon fair in January and the comic book festival in March to Les Nuitées d’Aix in August, every season gets its own festival! But if you only come to one, remember that the International Festival of Lyric Art is one of the most prestigious of its kind in the world !
