Pavillon de Vendôme

Aix en Provence - Museum

The Pavillon de Vendôme, the most attractive of the follies inherited from the Grand Siècle, was built on the orders of Louis Mercoeur as a hideaway for his passionate love affair with Lucrèce de Forbin Solliès.

Surrounded by a beautiful French-style garden, the main façade superimposes the three classical orders and is decorated with superb Baroque atlantes. The collections are made up of numerous 17th and 18th century portraits and Provencal furniture.
