A visit to old Antibes is a must for anyone visiting the French Riviera and while strolling the lazy lanes of the fortified town, the Picasso Museum comes into view and takes breath away, before you even enter. It’s easy to see why the eponymous artist found his muse here.
The castle was once Chateau Grimaldi, the palace home of the Grimaldi princes of Antibes who ruled form 1385 to 1608. The aristocrats have gone and in the castle’s hallowed halls are the works of famed artist Pablo Picasso.
Lithographs, drawings, sculptures, tapestries and paintings are on display in a setting overlooking the sea.
Opening hours 10 a.m. -12 p.m.; 2 p.m.-6 p.m.
The museum stays open until 8 p.m. on Wednesdays in July and August.
The museum is closed on Mondays.
Entrance fee €6
