Marc Chagall

In 1966, Marc and Vava Chagall left Vence to settle in Saint-Paul. They had a big house built on the edge of the village, called La Colline, where Chagall could work - for although the artist was almost 80 his work was very much in demand! Many of the pictures he painted in Saint-Paul are vibrant odes to love: loving couples entwined against calm blue skies, surrounded by birds and bunches of flowers, floating over the village and its ramparts.

The cemetery

The core of Saint-Paul de Vence between the year 1000 and the beginning of the 12th century was the Plateau du Puy, where the cemetery now stands. Dwellings had probably been set up around the church of Saint Michel, which played a religious role obviously, but was also where the community's representatives would gather to take major decisions. The current chapel probably dates from the 16th century.
