The Land of CezanNe
Aix-en-Provence was founded in 123 BC by Roman consul Sextius Calvinus, who gave his name to its springs (Aquae Sextiae), later "Aix." It was one of the earliest Roman colonies of ancient Gaul. The city reached its height in the 12th century as a center of art and learning.
Since then, the region has attracted many artists for its breathtaking scenery. Both Paul Cezanne and Pablo Picasso had homes there and painted the landscape regularly. The "Terrain des peintres" is a hill in Aix-en-Provence with a stunning view of the Sainte-Victoire mountain where Paul Cézanne came often to paint.
Beautiful paved pathways wind through the pines that gradually take visitors to the top of green hills where they can better observe the famous perspectives that inspired so many great artists.
With nearly 300 days of sunshine per year, the views are consistently stunning -- the Provence you've always dreamed of.
