Les Fontaines d'Aix

Exploring Aix: Ok, so i expected statues, but not millions of fountains, Aix-en-Provence is flooded with fountains [after all i think the name Aix was derived from a word that meant water, or i donno]. "Town of water, town of art...Aix was built and has developed around this dual identity..." Everywhere you turn is a fountain, if you see a fountain and walk 2 minutes, there is another.

La Rotonde:
The Park obliquely opposite the Dorms:
The 4 Dolphines:

Fountain on Cours Mirabeau [there are about 5 on this street]:
Others around the City:
