    Grasse Outdoor Market

    You can get almost anything at the Saturday market in Grasse. We got bread, cheese and fruit for a picnic.

    The flower and vegetable market is beautiful and it really is fun to watch the residents shop.

    To find it, just follow all the people. Everyone will be walking to the market. Or reverse and go against the folks walking away carrying bags of produce and flowers. This might be easier.

    Grasse remembers their lost sons

    A temple to commemorate those who fell

    On the Place du Petit-Puy, the square in front of the cathedral, one sees a pavillion shaped little building in a wonderfully green spot that is taken care of very properly. A closer look tells us that on the columns of the monument are names, many names. On a plaque in the centre we read the text "Remembering those we lost in WW I (Great War) and WW II" and thus Grasse commemorates her local hero's too and in a quite beautiful way.

    Fountains, Grasse has a wet history

    by Pavlik_NL Written Oct 19, 2004
    The beautiful old fountain on Place aux Air

    Everywhere you walk through Grasse and watch carefully, there are fountains, drinking places and water tap points. Of course the fountains jump into the eye as they often are centrally located on squares and quite large. Ilja is crazy about (running) water and so he pointed us out to every little dripping item and we came to the conclusion that Grasse must have something with water. Indeed, this location has many sources and was therefore already in medieval times a oasis for mankind, animals as well as the growing of crops.
