The Mazarin district was built in the 17th century according to a checkerboard plan, inspired by the Italian Renaissance, and built around two main axes: the Cardinale street and the Rue du 4 September. Cardinale Street is one of the most beautiful in the city, with its cozy homes that testify to its rich past. At its eastern end, on the Saint-Jean square in Malta, you will find the Granet Museum with its magnificent collection of paintings and sculptures from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. The street of the 4th of September was the first artery drawn by Mazarin when he ordered the expansion of the city. You will also find a museum of great interest, the Arbaud Museum, named after the generous patron who gave the city its rich collection of faience, manuscripts and paintings. In the heart of the Mazarin district and at the crossroads of its two main streets is the famous fountain of the Quatre-Dauphins, a true emblem of the city. Archbishop Mazarin intended to erect a statue of his own in the new district, but at his death the nobles of the city preferred to build a fountain. Baroque inspiration, it closely followed the vagaries of history since its obelisk successively supported a fleur-de-lis, then a cross of Malta, then... a pine cone.
