Antibes, the nearest town to where we live, was founded by the Greeks during the 4th century B.C. It is a charming place where one can still find many traces of a long history. The full name of the community is "Antibes Juan-les-Pins", but on this page we shall limit ourselves to a few photos of Antibes itself.
For more information about Antibes, you can visit the town's page on the Provence -- Beyond the French Riviera web site or, if you prefer, the town's official site.
