Biot is a little picturesque mountain town located in between Antibes and Valbonne, in the French department of Alpes-Maritimes. This town is mostly known for its pottery products and glassworks, which studios are open to the public. It is said that Pablo Picasso has learned the art of glass processing and ceramics here, and nowadays Biot is still home to many artists. The historic centre of Biot is the Place des Arcades, which is a small square surrounded by arcaded houses and here a 15th century church can be found as well. Here a 16th century retable of the Virgin of the Rosary by the artist Louis Brea is displayed. In the principle street the statue “L’envol” is established, built by the Dutch sculptor Kees Verkade. Southeast of the old centre, the Musée National Fernand Léger is located, entirely dedicated to the work of the painter Fernand Léger, an important representative of Cubism. In order to learn more about the art of glassblowing, you should visit the International Gallery of Glass, showing the manufacturing techniques and concepts behind this art. To get to Biot, you can first fly to Nice and from there take the car.
