Galerie des Ponchettes

The Galerie des Ponchettes in Nice, France is situated in a 19th century building, whose own history is as rich as much of the artwork it contains. The building was once a public bathhouse in the 1840’s that was later converted into a fish market. In the 1950’s, largely due to the urging of French artist Henri Matisse, the structure was converted into an art gallery. Since then, the Galerie des Ponchettes has blossomed into one of the top art galleries in Nice, featuring exhibits of contemporary artwork from both local and foreign artists.

  • Explore the vaulted interior of the Galerie des Ponchettes and you can admire this beautiful 19th century building that was once the most popular bathhouse in all of Nice.
  • Check out the latest of the ever-changing exhibits at the Galerie des Ponchettes and you might discover the next great talent from Nice or other cities around the world.
  • Attend an opening at the Galerie des Ponchettes whilst in Nice and you can rub elbows with the elite of the French art world and maybe even meet the current artist whose work is on display.

Nice is an easy city to get around due to its efficient public transit system. The Galerie des Ponchettes enjoys a beautiful location along the sea, so this is a great area to explore on foot once you get there. The best way to arrive to the Galerie des Ponchettes is to use the Nice Tram and get off at the Opera-Vielle Ville station that is located just a short walk from the gallery. There are several interesting attractions situated near the Galerie des Ponchettes, so the area offers a great place to spend the day.
