The Fontaine des Neuf-Canons is also on the Cours Mirabeau, the most prestigious avenue of Aix en Provence. This was the old road from Arles to Italy, passing next to the walls of Aix.

Built in 1691, this fountain served as a watering hole for animals, you can see a lower level of the fountain for easy drinking, and the cross-shaped stack allowed numerous animals to drink at the same time.
