Saint-Paul-de-Vence, a medieval village that turned into a fortress during the reign of Francis I. Buildings and structures are perfectly preserved, which attracts tourists from all over the world. Magnificent landscapes and ranges of colors served as inspiration for the most famous artists who turned Saint-Paul into an “artistic Mecca”
Here you will see ancient cobbled streets, medieval houses, fortifications and, of course, art workshops and galleries. Optionally, you can also visit the “Louvre of the Cote d’Azur”, as one of the local museums is called. Our own retro archive, May 1999 journey of Leonid G.
