Old Town is Grasse’s centrepiece, showcasing 17th and 18th century buildings, timeworn steps, arched tunnels and large squares. Place aux Aires, Old Town’s main square, has a lovely three-tier fountain along with butcher shops and bakeries. The Cathedrale Notre Dame du Pay, which was rebuilt in the 17th century, is home to three Peter Paul Rubens paintings, plus a Jean-Honoré Fragonard painting circa 1754. Visit the Navy museum, called the Musée de la Marine and housed in the Hôtel Pontevès, or browse the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire de Provence in the Petit Trianon mansion.
