Mougins : virtual visit of the city

Mougins is situated between Cannes and Grasse on the Napoleon road. The old village was strengthened in the Middle Age. In the 11th century, the count of Antibes gave Mougins to the abbey of Lérins, which kept it until the Revolution. During the war of succession of Austria (18th century), the village was destroyed by a fire and plundered by the austro-Sardinian armies.

The main economic activity of the 19th century was the floral production (rose and jasmine) for the perfumers of Grasse. From half of the 20th century, Mougins became a great tourist and artistic place of the Côte d'Azur. Nowadays, Mougins welcomes on its territory near 20% of the technopole of Sophia-Antipolis.
