Musée national Pablo Picasso - La Guerre et la Paix

In the heart of the old town, the Pablo Picasso national Museum is the starting point for a walk that goes through the town, linking sites and places where Picasso lived and worked. Pablo Picasso (1881- 1973) moved to Vallauris in 1948 and chose the chapel of Vallauris for his monumental painting entitled “War and Peace” (1952), that illustrates Picasso’s commitment for peace.

The artist takes a humorous and critical look at the relationship between culture and nature. In the chapel, his installation refers to little-known naturalist explorers associated with the British colonial enterprise in the Amazon during the 19th century.
