  • On top of the hill with a beautiful view over the Bay of Cannes is this museum in an ancient castle. From July to October 2017, there is a beautiful exhibition with paintings and excavations of a Frisian nobleman who donated his collection to the municipality of Cannes. From the Tower also a great view! Very worth it!
