Aristocrats, bourgeois, traders and clergymen who wanted to make their mark on the urban landscape built splendid private residences here. Thanks to their wonderful exterior decoration, the façades of these mansions testify to many different individual solutions, replaced by the magnificent expression of Provençal Mannerism in the early 17th century, a low-key period for architecture in Provence.
