  • Beautiful building with a staircase and an older Romanesque church (12th century?) of which the first part that forms a rounded tunnel was painted by Picasso to illustrate the war on one side and the peace of the other. It is a major work. There are also in the Museum of fine earthenware of Picasso. We liked least the temporary exhibition dedicated to Korean artists, but each his own.

  • There is only a town of ceramics, precious in the center ceramic works of Picasso. Small enough could spin to see if there 30 minutes. Because there is no bus from Cannes Sunday inconvenient since they must be using the Vallauris station.
  • My sister and I shared some wonderful memories enjoying our favorite artist. It was market day in Vallauris, the vendors were just leaving and there in the little park across from the museum was Picasso's sculpture of a man with goat in his arms . The sculpture was covered with dirty lettuce and tomatoes left behind by the venders. Oh my, Messier Picasso would not have tolerated this! I remember you could still buy a few pieces of his pottery in one of the street galleries.
  • A little quirky gem with many small rooms, but also a chapel of Picasso. Pay control visit.
