Fodor's Expert Review Phare de la Garoupe

Cap d'Antibes Religious Building/Site/Shrine

You can sample a little of what draws famous people to this part of the world by walking up Chemin de Calvaire from the Plage de la Salis in Antibes—a distance of about 1 km (½ mile)—and taking in the extraordinary views from the hill surmounted by this old phare (lighthouse). Next to it, the 16th-century double chapel of Notre-Dame-de-la-Garoupe contains ex-votos and statues of the Virgin, all in memory of and for the protection of sailors.
