Juan-les-pins International Jazz Festival
Juan-Les-Pins is the town which welcomed the first European Jazz Festival in 1960, and this was no coincidence. Nearly 46 years earlier, as soon as the phenomenon began, jazz arrived here as if by miracle. This is where the worldwide myth of the “Jazz Age” and “Enfants du Jazz” came into being.
Today (2007) Jazz in Juan celebrates its 47th anniversary. It has made a name for itself as one of those legendary places where jazz sees its memory developed ans, above all, its eternal renewal established through young and talented newcomers.

A visit to the Picasso Museum is a moving experience. It evokes joy and pain, despondency and exultation. Visitors cannot help but sense all that has gone on within these walls that were the Antibes Chateau. There was the delicate balance of a family relationship and the ensuing drama; the intrusion of the museum on the chateau; the silence and the magic. The chateau of Antibes is poetic, serious and joyous at one and the same time, like the sea that is visible from many of its windows. A place which saw nobility and poverty and which one day became the home of the Spanish artist Picasso, who continued the magic. The museum is not to be understood, it is to be experienced. It is what it is, take it or leave it.
