    Hilltop Village

    Mougins

    Much like many inland villages in Provence, Mougins is perched on a hill. These villages were built as such not only for defensive purposes but also to save the flatter grounds for agriculture. Upon the arrival in Mougins, a map of the city drawn on ceramic tiles, greets the visitor. Captured in the attached photo, the map gives the visitor an excellent perspective on how hilltop villages are built, with the alleys and streets following the contours of the hill.
