Musée du Bastion - Jean Cocteau

This historical museum is housed in a small 17C fort built into the seawall. Cocteau himself restored and transformed it between 1958 and 1963 with a view, in particular, to housing his romantic drawings, Innamorati; he wanted the series to be kept in Menton, with which he had fallen in love. The pebble mosaics on the outside of the building are also by the artist.
