Places to visit
La Halle des Verriers de Biot
Fifteen Master Glassmakers draw in the fire the bright material used to shape and give birth to unique objects in the world. Since 1956 the public can visit the workshop of the Masters, so to understand the mysteries of Biot glass manufacturing and admire the skills of the artisans.
Musée Fernand Leger
Considered as a great figure of Contemporary Art, Fernand Leger works, rich and consistent, shined through the first half of the 20th Century. After The War, themes of the City and the Machine took all the attention of the painter. Inspired by the modern life, this artist who lived in New York asserts a "New Realism" dedicated to the plastic beauty of the industrial civilisation, integrating urban signs and mechanical design while the human figure, standardised, is reduced to geometry.
The Historic Centre of Biot
First belonging to the order of the temple, then succeeded by the order of the Knights of Malta, Biot still holds the grandeur of a fortified village with rampart-houses and medieval gates. Since its renaissance in the 15th century, Biot has successfully preserved its charm along with its impressive architecture with engraved stones and mosaic cobbles along flower-decked streets, typically representative of the perched villages of the Mediterranean coast.
