See also Château Grimaldi (disambiguation) for other Châteaux of the same name
The Château Grimaldi at Cagnes-sur-Mer in the département of Alpes-Maritimes, in France, is built on the site of an earlier fortress occupied by the Greeks and then the Romans. The present castle was built in 1309 by Rainier Grimaldi (Lord of Cagnes and an admiral of France) - a distant ancestor of the present ruling house of Monaco. Later it became the residence of the Governors of the province. Following the French Revolution, it was used as barracks and later as a hospital. Now owned by the city of Cagnes, it is known as le Château Musée Grimaldi (the Grimaldi Castle and Museum).

Simply beautiful. A bit of a trek up the hill, but worth it 😂😎

Wonderful place to spend an hour- fantastic view from the top, lovely interior that has been redone. The olive oil museum on the ground floor is interesting. Mostly in French, so either have a good translator ap or be/bring a francophone.

Fascinating history of the Grimaldi family. Chateau is not too big to see everything in one visit. Views of the city and coast are wonderful! Buy the ticket that gets you into the Grimaldi and the Renoir museum and you pay less than if you buy them separately.

We had a great time here although the Grimaldy family wasn't there. :P Nice views of the town from the top.
