Château Grimaldi is the name given to several Châteaux in Europe which we founded by various members of the Grimaldi Family.

These Châteaux include:

  • Château Grimaldi (Antibes) (also known as the Picasso Museum), at Antibes is built upon the foundations of the ancient Greek town of Antipolis. Antibes is a resort town in the Alpes-Maritimes department in southeastern France, on the Mediterranean Sea
  • Château Grimaldi (Puyricard), at Puyricard near Aix-en-Provence is a mansion built within the ruined walls of a 16th-century Château once belonging to the Archbishops of Puyricard
