The medieval village

The medieval village surrounding the Chateau was a wonderful area to explore. We found each new street brought a new discovery that was truly a delight!

The Chateau is in good condition and quite attractive. It contains a nice collection of modern art as well as some interesting olive press artifacts. The view from the tower is stunning - full 360 degrees from Nice to Antibes and the mountains.

We visited this village after the Renoir Museum. It was about a 20 min walk, half of it up hill. There is a small bus for those who don't want to get thigh burn. Cagne Sur Mer is only a 20 min train rude from Nice and can be done in 2/3rds of a tour day. The castle is about... More

Having been before we knew that this would be good and the new exhibition on display was just as good as previous ones. The chateau is an amazing setting, full of character and atmosphere - and if you have the head for it, the views from the tower are amazing. Reasonably priced at 7 euros for adults this is well...

We have been there in the past, but this time for the first time with 2 kids(7 and 3 years old). We all enjoyed the visit, although it required a bit of walk uphill. The view from the tower is amazing and the castle itself is small but very well maintained. The ticket is cheap and kids don't pay. I... More

Set high on a hill. There is usually a shuttle bus to take you there. Did not run as there was a strike so we had a very challenging walk. Once there you can see an exhibition of Suzy Salidor paintings. Walking up the stairs you get to the roof. The view is breath taking.

This is a beautiful old Grimaldi Chateau. My favorite time of year is May when is it decorated with flowers very historical and surrounded with a place filled with cafes!

The jewel of the medieval village built around 1300 by Rainier Grimaldi, lord of Cagnes. The castle is nowmore a decorated rich palace and it is the town museum. Nowadays, the Grimaldi Castle Museum hosts the olive tree museum, the collection of Suzy Solidor portraits and temporary modern art exhibitions, as well as classical music concerts.

The building is amazing- worth a visit just to see the inside. The permanent exhibition of the Suzy Salidor paintings were great and very interesting. The olive oil exhibits were also interesting. There was a non-permanent exhibition of a contemporary artist which I really didn't like, but thats just my taste. All in all definitely worth a visit if you... More
