At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The water that flows through the heart of Aix.

In this region where water is precious owing to its scarcity, Aix-en-Provence has its own natural springs. Nevertheless it was not until the late 19th century that water ran freely in the basins of the fountains in the city, thanks to the canal du Verdon and to the Zola dam.

Primarily utilitarian when they were first built, the fountains later became elegant, stylistic, urban ornaments in the 17th century. Today around forty of these public fountains bear witness to the styles and the needs of a town which made them an integral part of urban life.

The most imposing of the fountains of Aix-en-Provence has to be the fontaine de la Rotonde, located in the extension on the cours Mirabeau, one of the most popular and lively spots in the city.
