The Antibes Old Town skyline is dominated by the picturesque Château Grimaldi. Originally the stronghold of the Grimaldi family today it houses the Musée Picasso, a delightful museum with a small, but important collection of paintings, ceramics and drawings. Picasso himself lived here for 6 months in 1946, donating the drawings and paintings he produced to the town of Antibes. There are also sculptures by Joan Miró and Germaine Richier, and paintings by Nicolas de Staël. One of the highlights is the amazing ocean view you discover after stepping out onto the roof terrace.
