Aix en Provence way before Mirabeau by Odysma

Aix en Provence - Guided tour - From January 2nd to December 31st by appointment

What do we know of Aix today? Its Cours Mirabeau ? its 18th century mansions?

But we hardly remember the city was founded by the Romans very near a Gallic capital and that it was a walled medieval city. Above all, it is difficult to detect the traces of its prestigious past .

Oppidum d'Entremont of the Saint-Sauveur Cathedral, through the Roman Baths, Odysma guides you to all these wonders rich of a thousand years of ancient and medieval history. A beautiful walk in the city in search of the places that have made history.
