Home of the Fondation Maeght

The epitome of a Provençal Village Perché or hill village, St-Paul was originally built to give some protection to the local inhabitants from marauding pirates along the coast. St-Paul rises out of the landscape and makes a stunning picture especially in the late afternoon.

Perched on a rocky bluff in the hills above Nice the village is a very popular tourist attraction and deservedly so given its intact ramparts, 12th Century Gothic Church, impressive rue Grande with 16/17th century houses and its famous, unique urn-shaped fountain.

If you're a fan of modern art don't miss the Fondation Maeght on Chemin des Fumerates just north west of the parking place. Enjoy works by Braque, Chagal and Kandinsky among others.

Département: Alpes-Maritimes.
