The painted walls

A dream cast on the walls of Cannes

The painted walls scattered around the city share the limelight to illustrate mythical scenes and icons of the cinema. You won’t leave Cannes without seeing a few frescoes, at the bend of a confidential alley or a more frequented avenue. From the Croisette to the old town of The Suquet, these works of the 7th Art offer another way of seeing the city. Stroll around freely or discover them accompanied by a local film lover.

The walls have ears… and much more in Cannes! The icons of the cinema are displayed in large-scale murals, true works of art.

In the four corners of the city, on the facades of houses or public buildings, discover about fifteen works bearing the effigy of stars or movie scenes in trompe-l’oeil.
