The view of the village from the road below is a real delight and behind its impressive ramparts lies evidence to its proud military past. Saint Paul de Vence is the second most visited village in France and invites you to discover its charm that has seduced so many famous painters, singers, writers and poets.

FYI: if you walk along the ramparts to the gate of Nice you will find the little cemetery of Saint Paul. Open the door and turn right: you will face a simple grave often covered with little stones ( a jewish tradition ) flowers or loving words written on pieces of paper. Here rest in peace painter Marc Chagall who spent its last 20 years in the village.
