Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / Bouches-du-Rhone / Aix-en-Provence / Pavillon de Vendome
Previously a grand mansion, Pavillon de Vendome is now the home of a museum displaying ancient and contemporary paintings, photography, and other artwork. Admire rare, 17th- and 18th-century paintings and sculptures. The mansion is an example of ancient Classical architecture and was registered as a historical monument in 1914. The central fountain in the museum's French garden is especially well-preserved.
