Musée de l’Annonciade

Saint-Tropez, France

Musée de l’Annonciade is one of the oldest modern art galleries in France. This 16th-century former chapel in Place Grammont contains some dross but also cracking stuff from artists connected with Provence in general and St Tropez in particular. Look out for Matisse, Utrillo, Seurat and Dufy. You should also have a look at the pointillist works of Signac, the first artist into St Tropez in the late 19th century.

Deffo worth it. Lovely art, only wish there was more of it.

It's CLOSED from January 10th thru February 15th. This small detail is mentioned only at the bottom of their home page. We showed dutifully on a Tuesday (Jan 17th) knowing that they are closed on Mondays to our great disappointment. They should make their seasonal closing dates more prominent on their homepage. Also Google does NOT have the seasonal closing dates and would lead to think that they are open. BTW many businesses and restaurants were closed. The classic chicken and the egg problem!

A surprisingly voluminous exhibition with some exciting paintings. Definitely worth the price of 4 euros. A nice surprise!

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
