History of the commune of Grasse, the capital of perfume

A millennium has already passed since the beginning of the existence of the city of Grasse. The origin of its name, which still exists today under the name "Grand Puy", would then come from "Podium Grassum": rock on which the city was built. It was only in the 10th century that the town obtained its independence and in the 12th century that it became a free commune, governed by consuls. In the 13th century, the Bishop of Antibes, wishing to flee the coastal areas in order to avoid recurring attacks, finally established his bishopric there.
