Musée Granet Exhibitions

Getting to the Musée Granet

The Musée Granet is located in the chic Quartier Mazarin. This new section Aix-en-Provence was constructed in the late 17th-century. The streets for this new quarter were planned in 1646 by Jean Lombard the director of public works at that time. The urban design was a grid pattern, unlike the streets and alleyways of Roman and Medieval Aix on the other side of the Cours Mirabeau.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
