Hôtel Maynier d'Oppède

Aix-en-Provence - Cultural place

The Hôtel Maynier d'Oppède, opposite the Archbishop's Palace, is named after a very old family of magistrates.

Bought in 1730 from the Forbin d’Oppède family, its frontage was rebuilt in 1757 by the architect Georges Vallon and the sculptor Chastel for the President of the Parliament, Etienne de Thomassin de Saint Paul.

It now houses the Institute of French Studies for Foreign Students.

During the Festival of Lyric Art, concerts and recitals are held in its shady courtyard.
