The Rotunda fountain

Aix-en-Provence - Cultural place

But the most imposing is probably the Rotunda fountain.

Its construction in 1860 marked a turning point not only were its dimensions exceptional for this city but it was also the first to have a cast iron basin.

Three statues (Law, Agriculture and Fine Arts) adorn the fountain and recall the main activities of this town. At the time the fountain was a symbol at the entrance to the modern town, which had neither ramparts nor gates and was open to the world.

Aix has grown, and today the “Great Fountain” is in the city centre.
