Terrain des Peintres
Famous French painter Paul Cézanne was born and raised in Aix en Provence. He lived there all his life, and many of his works are of the city’s beautiful landscape, including the famous Mountain Saint Victoire. The Terrain des Peintres is a public park that has been dedicated to him, as he often frequented the gardens for their exceptional views of Aix. Walk along the path in the park, following the same footsteps taken by the famous painter. Following along the trails, you’ll reach an elevation of about 100 feet, giving you panoramic views of the city. If you feel so inclined, bring your own notebook or canvas and take a stab at capturing the beauty of Mt. St. Victoire.
