Aix-en-Provence is the former capital of the Counts of Provence. It has maintained its rich heritage which can be seen on the noble 17th and 18th century facades on the Cours Mirabeau and in the old city. Aix-en-Provence is also resolutely looking toward the future: it is a city that is young and cosmopolitan, gourmet and full of life. It is almost entirely pedestrian and one can easily spend hours walking through its streets to discover its 33 fountains, admire its ochre facades in Bibemus stone, the oratories at the angles of many streets…
