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

Architectural walk.

You can't come to Aix en Provence without going to the Cours Mirabeau. A place that is full of history and one that is pleasant to take a stroll in, it is one of the most visited and lively locations in the towns.

A tunnel of greenery, the "Cours" cannot be missed. You only need to walk the Cours to discover their charm. On either side of the street, which opened in the 17th century, to replace of the old city walls, the biggest aristocratic families had elegant homes built, showing, somewhat pretentiously, their achievements.

Richly decorated facades on the Cours side and hidden common gardens on a parallel street, this architectural genre creates a wonderful impression of urban unity.

Look closely at the Hôtel de Villars (n°4), Hôtel de Forbin (n°20) and Hôtel Maurel-de-Pontevés (n°38).
