Currently, the fountain is turned off and there is a lot of construction work going on around the fountain. So, now is not the best time to visit the fountain to see it in all its glory. However, it is still a good stop, but...More

This is clearly going to be a big improvement when cars are excluded and pedestrians offered a triffid free area in which to wander. Not all pedestrian ways are free from traffic and the system is poorly policed

This fountain is being refurbished, or maybe the roadway around it is under construction. Regardless, a view of the fountain is largely obscured by construction vehicles and cement barricades. From what can be glimpsed, it must be an impressive sit and no doubt will be...More

A spectacular large fountain dominates a roundabout. There was quite a bit of construction around it when we were there in May. You can't miss it it is at the start of the Cours Mirabeau.

I think that this fountain at the west end of Cours Mirabeau, the city's most popular strolling street, is the most imposing of the many that I saw in Aix. It is 105-feet wide and rises to a height of 39 feet. Features include three...More

The fountain is a bit lost in the road works at the moment, but it's still pretty impressive with its lions, cherubs, dolphins and waterspouts. It gets pretty crowded round here, so hopefully they are expanding the pedestrian area at the western end of Cours...More

This fountain is quite large and is the central point of a traffic circle. There is a lot of action going on with water spraying in multiple directions.

In the center of the town of Aix-en-Provence (as seen by us) we saw its biggest roundabout and what appeared to be the heart of this town. It had an unusual flea market in one corner, children's mini-train/other play rides at other, the tourist office,...More

You'll surely pass this fountain as it is in the center of town and on the way to lots of attractions. Somewhat marred by the constant traffic, still impressive.
