Cagnes-sur-Mer is a city in Alpes-Maritimes region of southern France.
The town is divided in three parts. The Cros de Cagnes is the portion of the village that is near the Sea, including the little fishermen harbour. The Cagnes is the modern portion of the village. The Haut de Cagnes is the medieval origin of the Cagnes settlement and nestles around an imposing medieval castle once owned by the Grimaldi dynasty (the Royal family of Monaco). The picture-perfect village has been maintained successfully over the years and offers an alternative to the concrete of the modern French Riviera.
