Adventurer's Index, France, Galleries Pavillon Vendome in Aix: Knowing It’s Near the Street Where We Live Posted on May 26, 2016March 7, 2018Author Slowlanefrance We live 3 blocks from Pavillon Vendome. It was built between 1665 and 1667 for the duke of Vendome. We pass through it nearly every day.
