Cemetery
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.

  • The cemetery is located at the top of the old Chin. Panoramic view of the Bay, ancient tombs with monumental chapels. Accessible by lanes of old Chin. At the exit take the boulevard that descends on the edge of sea

  • Fell in love with Chin, this Italian franco has a lot of charm and offers great shopping... Do not hesitate to climb to enjoy beautiful views... unforgettable... you can then rest on the sand with the sound of the lapping of the waves... A beautiful city easily served by train from nice (Ventimiglia line)

  • We discovered this place by accident - driving along the Boulevard de Garavan - a dazzling drive, scented by Cedar trees looking down to the aquamarine Mediterranean below but reaching it by car is treacherous. If you have to reverse to allow oncoming traffic to pass - the drop down to the sea is a long way. Very narrow road. But once find your way here - the views are incredable - along the coast to Italy on your left and to Cap Martin on your right. Inside this very ancient Cemetry on a outcrop overlooking the red tiled rooftops below - the final resting places of familys are more like little houses, forever gazing out to sea. When we descended to Menton below and sitting in a cafe next to the sea and told someone where we had been - they gave us a look and said 'most people walk to visit it'.
  • A magical place that is almost as beautiful as the cemetery of San Miniato in Florence
