  • The atmosphere is zen; This is due to the works of Folon, sculptures, painting and mosaic. What some here call mural is actually a mosaic, composed of small pieces cut manually and square side 1 cm on average. Mosaic asked Ravenna method, each piece being more or less stuck in the plaster forming the bottom of the so-called Mosaic. 160 square metres of mosaic which each square meter contains about ten thousand pieces of Mosaic: 1 and a half million pieces of ceramic that each in its form and its studied color. This quiet and gives an idea of the patience and motivation who had to live the artist.

  • Saint-Paul-de-Vence, perched on top of a hilltop is a small medieval town near Nice that host some of the most amazing art museums and galleries I’ve ever seen. If I ever develop the taste (and money) for collecting art, this would be the 1st place to start hunting.
  • The Church is really worth seeing. Unfortunately, it is badly maintained.
