Town of art and artists

Saint-Paul, situated on a rock and surrounded by walls built on the order of François I, is without a doubt one of the most beautiful villages of the Provence. The beauty of this site, the easy life and the exceptional incidence of light have inspired many artists, writers, poets and painters, some of which settled here. A few of their works can be seen at the Fondation Maeght, one of the best museums of modern art in France.
