The carillon on Rue de l’Oratoire was installed in late summer 2012.
It is comprised of twelve bells that chime every hour (10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.), playing the celebrated Provençal anthem “Se Canto.”
At noon, it puts on a three-minute “mini-concert” for spectators. For this musical interlude, the bells play another famous tune from Provençal culture, “Coupo Santo.”
The cathedral dates from the mid-13th century (the bishopric was transferred from Antibes to Grasse in 1244). The architecture is influenced by both Liguria and Lombardy (layout, decorative elements, vaulting).
The main facade is simple and unassuming, reflecting the interior layout : a raised central nave and two side aisles.
Jean-Pierre Boselli, a native of Grasse, the son and grandson of perfume-plants producers, grew up in the world of flowers and fragrance, which naturally forged his ultimate artistic propensities.
Wood, a material second nature to him, was a way for him to combine his two passions, perfume and wood, following an inspiring television program on bottles.
The CDM hosts exhibition spaces and educational workshops: essential and inseparable elements of heritage mediation, core business of the national network of Cities and Countries of Art and History (VPAH). You will also find the whole of the Pole Mediation (lecturers and administrative guides), the Inventory Pole (Research on movable heritage, monumental and intangible), a documentation center and a presentation of the VPAH network.
