    The Nomad

    A monumental work of art on the seafront

    The Nomad (le Nomade) watches over the Port of Antibes and proudly displays the immaculate capital letters that it is made from. At 10 metres tall, this work of genius by Catalan artist Jaume Plensa stands out elegantly against the blue skies of the Côte d’Azur. Sitting facing the sea, with one leg tucked up against his chest, the nomad watches the Mediterranean and appears overwhelmed by its beauty.

    As the letters take flight, so do the words, as if to make room for silence and contemplation. After this moment frozen in time, you'll want to go inside, as if to become one with the sculpture that blends so perfectly into its environment. Once the sun sets, the spectacle – still free of charge – takes on a new character thanks to the subtle lighting changes that, once again, enhance the gentle contours of the structure's white steel.

    The Garoupe Plateau (Plateau de la Garoupe), located on the Cap d'Antibes peninsula, reaches an altitude of 75 metres and offers an extraordinary view across the Mediterranean. The plateau is home to a lighthouse – the semaphore of the country's Navy – and the Garoupe Chapel (Chapelle de la Garoupe) with its little oratory known as 'Our Lady of Lovers, Protector of Homes'. You can get there by road or, better still, by following the Chemin de Calvaire trail to the end, where you'll catch the first glimpse of this amazing sight.

    Hikers will be particularly relieved to find a little bistro serving local specialities, such as pans-bagnats (sandwiches), petits farcis niçois (stuffed vegetables) or pissaladières (onion tarts). Take the time to study the viewpoint indicator to find Italy, the snowy Alps and even Corsica, which will appear as the sun rises.
