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.

Right in the centre of Aix-en-Provence sits this huge fountain, with many roads falling part of this roundabout its best to park and see the fountain from the side as its worth having a look

This fountain has three ladies gazing in different directions, but the best direction is up the Cours Mirabeau with its cafes on the sunny side and banks in the shade on the other side.

This fountain was at a very busy roundabout in the centre of Aix so you can't miss it. We were disappointed that it wasn't illuminated at nihgt.
