Picasso Museum (Antibes)

The Picasso Museum in Antibes is housed in the stunning Château Grimaldi, where Pablo Picasso took up residence following an invitation by the then-curator of the Grimaldi Museum. During his two prolific years in Antibes, Picasso produced numerous works that he later donated to the castle. The museum displays an impressive collection of Picasso's paintings, drawings, ceramics, and sculptures, as well as some of his personal belongings. Additionally, the museum features works by other artists who inspired or were influenced by the Spanish artist. Visitors can enjoy the stunning views of the Mediterranean from the castle's ramparts and explore the museum's beautiful sculpture garden.
