The Musée National Picasso is a simple stone house. Picasso used to live here beginning in 1948 and he strove to create pottery art from the malleable soil with a single-minded passion. But he returned to painting in 1952 to create one of his masterworks in the château’s Romanesque chapel. This vast multi-panel oil-on-wood composition called La Guerre et la Paix (War and Peace). The chapel is part of the Musée National Picasso today, where several of Picasso’s ceramic pieces are displayed. La Taverne du Safranier offers local cuisine with a seat on the lively terrace. It’s always full of locals, so you know the food has to be good!
