Basilica St. Michel, Menton
Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Rich in Franco-Roman history, the Gothic Basilica St. Michel was built between the end of the 14th century and the 16th century. Visit this French historic monument for a look at the architecture and artwork within, such as the pulpit, which represents St. Michael slaying the dragon. The separate bell tower, which is 114 m (nearly 400 ft) tall, was built in the 15th century. An 1881 exploration revealed a Gallo-Roman cemetery and catacombs under the tower. The church's stained-glass windows were destroyed during the bombardment of 1940. Arrange to visit Basilica St. Michel and other attractions in Menton using our Menton vacation route planner.

Пожалуй одно из обязательных мест к просмотру туристов. Словами не передать все увиденное. Особенно барочный собой и панорамный вид на город и Лазурный берег,рекомендую!)Perhaps one of the required seats to watching tourists. Words cannot convey everything seen. Especially Baroque and a panoramic view of the city and the Côte d'Azur, recommend!)show original
