Musée Picasso (Antibes)

8.2

The Musée Picasso, formerly the Château Grimaldi at Antibes, is built upon the foundations of the ancient Greek town of Antipolis. Antibes is a resort town in the Alpes-Maritimes department in southeastern France, on the Mediterranean Sea. The castle is the subject of a classification as historical monuments since April 29, 1928.

The Château Grimaldi was originally built in the late fourteenth century as the residence of the town's feudal lords Marc and Luc Grimaldi, scions of the famous Grimaldi Dynasty, and has borne their name ever since. During the French Revolution it was seized by the revolutionary authorities, which set up the town hall there; after the Bourbon Restoration it was converted into a barracks.
