Salon-de-Provence's unofficial mascot is Fontaine Moussue on the place Crousillat just outside the Porte de l'Horloge. Covered by a thick mound of moss and resembling a giant mushroom, this much-photographed fountain dates from the 16th century. It is surrounded by plane trees planted to commemorate events over the centuries. One was planted in 1799 to mark the end of the Revolution; another was planted in 1919 to mark the end of World War I.
