Cagnes-sur-Mer is a town of many parts: medieval town, fishing village, beach resort, and modern town. Its history was linked to that of the Grimaldis of Monaco, who built a fortress in agnes-sur-Mer in 1310, later developed into a beautifully decorated castle by Henri Grimaldi in 1620. Painters such as Renoir, who lived here from 1903 until his death in 1919, were attracted to Cagnes-sur-Mer by its light and colour.
