Basilique Saint Michel, Menton

(4.4/5 based on 440 reviews on the web)
Rich in Franco-Roman history, the Gothic Basilique Saint 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 Basilique Saint Michel and other attractions in Menton using our Menton vacation route planner.

  • The Basilica of Saint Michel is located in a very suggestive position, on a square overlooking a stretch of blue sea. Nearby is also the Chapelle des Penitents Blancs and going for a couple of minutes you reach the Cimetière du Vieux Chateau from where one enjoys a splendid view of the city.

  • 從火車站走到這邊有一點距離 雖然遠遠看到這麼一座教堂, 但是它的位置真的不會讓人特別想上去 我是在海岸堤防上剛好聽到鐘聲 所以吸引了我往上走 走到外面時也未見開放 所以...或許遠望就好了  more »
