Nice history

This was a nice historic place that has some great stories behind it. The square it is on has a great market on Friday as well. We enjoyed it!

I love the Hotel de Villes in France, they are always just so pretty. This one is on the same square as the flower market and there are cafes and shops. It is worth a visit!

This is one of my favorite spots in Aix. I visit every time I am in Aix. I have enjoyed watching the changes over the years of visiting.

Worth a stop in if your passing by but don't go out of your way. There are restrooms inside on second floor

This is a very imposing building on a major Square. It evokes the key French political philosophy of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. I hope that the French never lose sight of this central political theme, no matter what happens in their own internal political scene!! It has been the inspiration fro democracy in so many countries -- a democracy concept... More

We were lucky to be greeted in this wonderful square by a talented jazz group. The setting under the clock tower and in front of the old city hall is beautiful and one can sit for hours sipping a glass if the music and weather is right.

The Hotel de Ville square is where everyone sits, sips wine and listens to the accordion player or local musicians play. Travellers sit around the fountain, walk through the featured artist's exhibition, or meander the local flower market vendors. It's the perfect place to spend a leisurely few hours any time of day.

We were happy that we could hear, inside the Hotel de Ville, a pre-classical music concert. It was late in the evening, torches had been lit, chords concert was in full swing .... and, above all, one could hear the old clock tower .... can be more beautiful than that?

This square is home to various markets on different days - it is always lively and entertaining. Do not miss the clock tower at the top end!
