Fontaine du Roi René

King René d'Anjou (1409-1480) made Aix his capital and dedicated most of his energy to embellishing the city. The fountain depicts him holding a bunch of Muscat grapes, a variety that the gourmet king had introduced to Provence. The fountain is the work of another native of Anjou, David d'Angers.
