Aix-en-Provence - France

Not so long ago Luzia has been to Provence in France and she  sent me this card from Aix-en-Provence. The city is located in the south of France, in the region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur.

The church on the card is the Church of Saint-Jean-de-Malte, named after the Knights of Saint-John of Jerusalem.
Built outside the ramparts in the 13th century, this was the first Gothic construction in Provence. It used to contain the graves of the Counts of Provence in its side chapels.
