“Great view, but no paintings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

A moving walk up Chimin du Calvaire to Santuario della Garoupe on Good Friday, past the 12 stations of the cross. Wonderful views over Antibes and Jaun le Pins, church peaceful. But the paintings have been removed and I have no idea why! It was somehow beautiful in its simplicity.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

If you are in the Antibes/Juan Les Pins area then it is worth a trip up to the Phare and Sanctuary de Garoupe. The drive up is interesting, past some magnificent gated villas, and then when you get to the top there are great views of Antibes and Nice. The sanctuary itself is very interesting, with touching messages for those lost at sea, and some quaint models and statues. Take care as the opening hours can be erratic; have been once when it was closed for no apparent reason.

Always loved this tiny church dedicated to those lost at sea...it's peaceful, full of soul and moving...I always saw myself getting married there, but never did....
