Antibes in France is the 115th site to join the Historic Sites of Grimaldi of Monaco

The coastal city Antibes in southeastern France has been added to the Sites Historiques Grimaldi de Monace (Historic Sites of Grimaldi of Monaco). The network was founded in 2015 to connect and promote cities and towns linked to the Grimaldi family. With Antibes, 115 sites in France and Italy join the network today.

After revealing the network’s plague, Albert II, Prince of Monaco, visited the Musée Picasso (Picasso Museum) in Antibes. The museum is built upon the foundations of the ancient Greek settlement of Antipolis. In 1608, it became a chateau of the Grimaldi family. From 1925, it was known as the Grimaldi Museum. Pablo Picasso lived in the chateau in 1946. Today, it is known as the Picasso Museum.
