The mossy fountain on the Cours Mirabeau isn't particularly beautiful in the traditional sense like it's distant cousin the Fountaine de La Rotonde further down the boulevard. But it is interesting and unique in a historical sense. Over 350 years old, the fountain is really nothing more than a large green ball of moss with water slowly trickling out...but it is calming and reassuring in its consistency and presence.

One can't missing it while walking the Cours Mirabeau...nor should you!!

This fountain, one of many in Aix, is covered with moss, while the others are not. The reason is that this fountain is fed by a hot spring (I believe 24 degrees C) which allows the growth of the moss.

An impressive fountain in its simplicity yet grand enough not to be unnoticed. The plants growing on the stones render it quite unique.

Don't go out of your way to find it, but it is a fun fountain that you will probably pass 2/3 times visiting Aix, as it is in the centre.

The mossy fountain on Cours Mirabeau is one of a kind. The water in the fountain is warm water, which helps the moss to thrive. It is a picturesque fountain.

It is said the water of this fountain stays at 18 degrees, if you come in winter you can touch and feel the warm temperature and see vapour come out.

This fountain is said to be the oldest of those along the Cours Mirabeau dating from 1667.

The water in this fountain is said to be around 18 degrees centigrade and it originates from some warm underground springs.

Hardly a must see.

Within easy walking distance of the Tourism Office, from a distance this fountain is quite ugly – it’s just a round blob covered in moss and other small plants. If you look up closely, however, the different plants are quite lovely, and covered in the smallest droplets of the water from the fountain.
It’s history is also interesting. It’s best to use the map provided by the Tourist Office to discover the many fountains within the Old Town.

One of the fountains on Cours Mirabeau. Photo opportunity for visitors during their visit here with many cafes and shops around.
