In the seaside town of Villefranche sur Mer, you will find a Romanesque chapel dedicated to Saint Peter, patron saint of fishermen. Built in the fourteenth century, it served as a place of worship but also as a reserve for fishing equipment.
In 1957, writer and filmmaker Jean Cocteau, who was also a painter, decided to redecorate the entire chapel. Your visit will enable you to discover his paintings: passages from the life of Saint Peter, the chandeliers of the Apocalypse and local scenes that pay homage to Saintes Maries de la Mer and Les Demoiselles de Villefranche. What better way to understand the history of the city and the role of fishermen than by visiting this beautiful chapel?
In 1938, La Mère Germaine opened this restaurant in Villefranche-sur-mer, a fishing port situated between Nice and Monaco. The restaurant specialises in fish and seafood, but is also famous for its bouillabaisse, the regional fish soup. Sit on the terrace by the sea and enjoy the exceptional view of the harbour and the beach as you eat.
