Saint-Paul-de-Vence The Essential
Recommended
Visible from afar among the pleasant hills and valleys of the Vence landscape, St-Paul-de-Vence has retained its medieval appearance, so characteristic of the fortified settlements which protected the Var frontier until 1870. The Maeght Foundation, a modern art museum built in 1964 by architect José Luis Sert, fits perfectly into the Mediterranean landscape thanks to its materials - white concrete and pink brick - and its large windows giving onto the garden with its trees and sculptures.
