chateau, historic site, landmark

The Château de la Calade is a listed château in Aix-en-Provence.



It is located at 1330, chemin du Château-de-la-Calade in Aix-en-Provence, close to Puyricard. It is also not far from the Touloubre river.


It was built from 1634 to 1653 for Jérôme de Duranti. The architectural style was archaic on purpose: Jérôme de Duranti had only recently become a member of the aristocracy, and he wanted to look more regal. It only has two stories, with a turret on each side. Inside, the wallpaper named "jardins de Bagatelle" was painted before 1804.

Architectural significance

It has been listed as a monument historique since 2011.
