Garoupe Lighthouse (Phare de la Garoupe), Antibes
Categories: Lighthouses, Tourist Spots
Hike or drive to Garoupe Lighthouse (Phare de la Garoupe), the old lighthouse of Antibes, for panoramic views of the French Riviera and beyond. The lighthouse itself is not open to visitors, but pack a picnic or grab an ice cream from the vendor on top of the hill and admire the view of the ocean. Visit the small chapel located next to the lighthouse with colorful offerings placed there by local seamen. The hike up is strenuous and involves many stairs; bring water and note that it can get very hot. Garoupe Lighthouse (Phare de la Garoupe) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Antibes Edition.

She was completely covered with ex-votos of sailors rescued from the sea. Some tabular or plaques, others in the form of model ships hanging everywhere. Since the recent renovation, many models of boats disappeared and the place is a little less magical. The chapel has however gained clarity and still very beautiful. A good way to get there is to take the road to Calvary that starts at the Port of Salis and leads in 12 stations of cross, by a fairly steep rockslides in the Chapel Trail. A little hard, but not very long and so very passable. The panorama, arrived up there, is superb.show original
