A scenic boulevard in the city centre, Cours Mirabeau encapsulates the splendid spirit of Aix-en-Provence. Lush green plane-trees line the street, providing shade for the people seated at outdoor cafes below.
This wide pedestrian street was once the stomping ground of French icons including Albert Camus and Emile Zola. It’s filled with beautiful Renaissance mansions and ornate fountains like the famous Fontaine de la Rotonde.
Cours Mirabeau also marks the division between Quartier Mazarin (new town) and the Ville comtale (old town).
