  • Not really a church anymore it seems like an art gallery but still worth stopping in.
  • Saint-Paul-de-Vence, perched on top of a hilltop is a small medieval town near Nice that host some of the most amazing art museums and galleries I’ve ever seen. If I ever develop the taste (and money) for collecting art, this would be the 1st place to start hunting.
