The village spirit of Le Cros-de-Cagnes
With its fisherman’s houses adorned by their blue shutters, Le Cros-de-Cagnes is a gentle blend of tradition and modernity. Long ago, the area flourished because of fishing and many people from Cagnes-sur-Mer came and set up shop here in order to take part in this profitable trade. In 1866, the village was placed under the protection of Saint Peter, the patron saint of abundance. A dedicated chapel was therefore erected, and its ochre tones now rub shoulders with water sports, beach restaurants and dynamic trading activities.
