The city of a thousand fountains, Aix en Provence is situated in the Provence region in Southern France. Built on hot springs, the city was founded in 122 BC by a Roman consul. During the middle ages, it became the capital of Provence county and the centre for art and learning.

With more than three hundred days of sunshine, this city enjoys a moderate temperature and the 137,000 inhabitants can enjoy their beautiful city all year round. Though summer is the peak of tourist season, spring and winter are also good times to visit.

Some of the main economies of the city are extraction of olive oil, wine-making and the manufacture of the famous Calissons sweets. With its many thermal springs, it was also famous for its Roman baths.

Overall Guide : The renowned painter Paul Cézanne lived and painted in the city and there are brass ‘C’s set into the ground throughout the city to mark places of importance associated with him. The city holds many festivals throughout the year, the... more most famous of them being the International Festival of Lyric Art in July, and the Dance Festival. The main attractions in the city, as much for their architecture as for their history, are the Cathédrale Saint Sauveur which has artefacts dating back to the 4th century, the thermal springs,  the fountains and the Palais de l'Archêveché. Also, close to the Cours Mirabeau is the church of Saint-Jean-de-Malte, built in the 13th century. Aix en Provence has nearly 10 museums dedicated to art and history.
