There's a fairly modern shopping plaza (Rotonde Bonaparte) which also has a bus service contained in it. This is not a particularly flattering backdrop for a grand fountain which is further made less attractive by the road work in progress.

Many of the roads approaching Rotonde and the rotonde itself are under re-construction in September 2018. It is chaotic. Walk - don't try and drive!!

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

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.
