Placed at the far side of the Rotonda fountain facing up towards the parade street the status stands in a nice spot. Good for a quick stop. This is also some kind of taxi zone, so among the statue, you'll be among a lot of...More

Cezanne lived and painted in this region, so it is apropos that a major statue depicts him here, in a noble place in the center.

Not sure why this is such a big deal even though he was the man in Aix. But, you can't miss it when visiting the TI office.

This beautiful life-size statue stands at la rotunda in the center of Aix-en-Provence . It was sculpted from a photograph taken in the early 1900s . The photo is on display in his workshop .

I noticed when we were looking at the statue that Cezanne seemed awfully short so I looked up his height. He was only 5' 6".

Well worth a visit to see this statue which is situated near to the Tourist Office. To come to Aix and not see it would not complete your visit to the lovely city.

We were nearing the end of our morning in Aix en Provence and our tour group had been given some free time to wander through the town by ourselves. We had crossed the very busy roundabout which is home to the Fontaine de La Rotonde...More
