Cannes: sightseeing of the city – World heritage of UNESCO

From the modest fishermen village to the cultural world-famous seaside resort, Cannes has forged a singular history, made of passions and timely encounters as in the most beautiful love stories.

Historians located the presence of the first occupants one century before Jesus Christ, The Ligurians. These transalpine people who dominated the western end of the known world of the time, settled on a promontory, the actual Le Suquet, and erected an oppidum or fortified camp. No archaeological vestige does attest to the occupation of the site by the Ligurians, but they were named barbaric by the Greek geographer Strabon. Turn and look to the sea to find traces of these early tourists.

The Rock of Monaco was a shelter for primitive populations. Traces of their occupation were discovered in a cave in the Saint-Martin Gardens. The first sedentary inhabitants of the region, the Ligures, are described as a mountain people, accustomed to hard work and an exemplary frugality.
