Château de Vauvenargues
Château de Vauvenargues information
On the northern side of Montagne Ste-Victoire, the D10 passes Vauvenargues , home to 14th-century Château de Vauvenargues, where Picasso is buried. The red-brick castle, bought by the artist in 1958 and his home between 1959 and 1961, still belongs to the Picassos. It opened its doors to visitors in 2009 to raise money for its restoration. It is again closed to the public, but views of it from the evocative village, with Ste-Victoire in the background, are spectacular.
