Fondation Maeght

The Parisian art collector Aimé Maeght was a close friend of some of 20th-century art’s leading lights.

In the 1960s he called in Catalan architect José Luis Sert to collaborate with artists like Chagall, Braque and Joan Miró and fashion a space that integrated modern art into the building design, all in a secluded natural location.

The walk to the museum from Saint-Paul is something too, as you ramble through pine forest with rosemary and thyme on the Chemin Sainte-Claire.

On this one-kilometre route you’ll go by three chapels and a Dominican convent.
