Old Chateau Cemetery, Menton
(4.7/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
A beautiful cemetery, Old Chateau Cemetery, is easily accessible and presents the most amazing views of the undulating vineyards below it. If you are fond of walking, then perhaps walking to the church located on a niche in the southeast of church hill, is a very good idea. It will take you through the intoxicating beauty of the cypress gardens sprawled around the church. The simplicity of the brick and stone structure, the austerity and the peaceful nature of the place makes it a spiritual getaway from the humdrum of city life.

  • It can be accessed by car by the boulevard Garavan but beware parking difficult especially during holidays, or walk by the rise of the memory and the small alleys of the old city, ca goes up but do not rise too fast to appreciate the small alleys and ochre houses tight against the other. Enter the cemetery by the side door or announced the Web Ellis grave the inventor of rugby. Graves has been abandoned, but we must look at the diversity of people who are based here: English, Russian, German, Canadian, Italian... The cemetery consists of several floors and the view is panoramic. Not at all sad atmosphere because it is really a nice place, or we have more buried unless one has a family franchise.

  • To get to this mythical place you have to walk, but frankly it's worth. We found amazing lanes. But once up there, we discover a cemetery where peace reigns. We have a panoramic view of Chin which is beautiful. Go there you will not be disappointed and you find out the name of important person of Chin resting for a long time.

  • Walking in a cemetery? Yes... It welcomes more than new residents for a very long time. It became a place to stroll among the tombs of illustrious Menton, anonymous and celebrities and Yes! The inventor of the modern Rugby rules there is... eternal home: Sir William Webb Ellis! (at the grand Damns English: p). in addition, the panorama is magnificent (the cemetery was built on the ruins of the old medieval castle of Chin... shaved).
