Aix-en-Provence is famed for its waters, its art, its university and the historic capital of
Provence. The 17th century Cours Mirabeau and its multitude of cafés, its beautiful fountains - the most renowned of which is la Rotonde (1860) - its palatial town houses never fail to captivate visitors who come from the world over to discover its long history. Aix is 15 km from the Sainte-Victoire mountain, a rock climber's dream and ideally suited to hikes and walks, which was depicted lovingly by the impressionist painter Paul Cézanne (born on 19 January 1839 in Aix-en-Provence).
