City built between sea and hills, Saint-Laurent-du-Var is located on the banks of the Angels’s Bay, near Cagnes-sur-Mer and the International Airport of Nice.
In the 11th century, a hospice for travelers was placed under the protection of the Laurent Saint. The village developed around the hospice and the activity of the ford on the Var river until the construction of a bridge in 1792. Saint-Laurent-du-Var was long a border town with the County of Nice. The Old Village remains with its picturesque streets and Romanesque church.
With an active and modern industrial area of 32 hectares in the north part, Saint-Laurent-du-Var enjoys a dynamic waterfront in the south part with the pedestrian promenade of the Flots-Bleus, the Goelands esplanade, the large commercial center Cap 3000, and the marina, one of the most important of the Riviera coastline. Saint-Laurent-du-Var is part of the Nice Côte d'Azur metropolis.
