The square's fountain of the four dolphins, inspired by Bernini's fountain in Rome, dates from an age when Italian Culture set the baroque standard across Europe...

Rich in buildings of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries essentially, Aix-en-Provence provides a real pleasure to walk its old streets covered with sumptuous façades with very interesting architectures.

The Cathedral of The holy Saviour.

The old Aix is also home to the Granet Museum.
