The settlement began in the 4th century as the Greek “Antipolis” or “facing” in this case Nice. Antibes was a bishopric from the 5th to the 13th century. In the light of its strategic military position Henri IV bought it from the Grimaldi family at the beginning of the 15th century and it was fortified by subsequent kings.

Napoleon Bonaparte settled in Antibes with his family in 1794 when he was appointed to defend the coast.

In 1946 Pablo Picasso was given permission to use part of the 16th century Chateau Grimaldi as a large studio, where he created numerous large masterpieces – eventually donated to the town of Antibes when he left.
