On the waterfront opposite the market, a squat medieval bastion crowned with four tiny watchtowers houses the extraordinary Musée Jean Cocteau, France's memorial to the eponymous artist-poet-filmmaker (1889–1963). Cocteau spotted the fortress, built in 1636 to defend the port, as the perfect site for a group of his works. While the museum has nearly 1,800 ouevres graphic, about 990 are original Cocteaus, a donation from the late California businessman and Holocaust survivor Severin Wunderman's personal collection. This is a must-see.
