Holiday in Aix-en-Provence – Your guide to Aix-en-Provence, France

 

What to buy in Aix-en-Provence?

Calissons, the almond flavoured local specialty treat, have come to symbolise the city of Aix-en-Provence and make a wonderfully unique gift. Found in candy shops, markets and pastry shops all over the city, calissons are said to be good for your health and keeping evil away. Every year on the first Sunday of September, the Church of Saint Jean de Malte holds a Blessing of the Calissons ceremony.
