  • But it is especially the view which is great especially in the fall with all its beautiful colors. It is not big thing in the castle which is disappointing but the view makes up for everything!

  • A bit disappointing this visit to the castle of Roquebrune, you see only meager and environments with few historical references. Lovely location and at the same time strategically strong in ancient times, the castle was built by the counts of Ventimiglia in the 10th century, to counter the raids of the Saracens in the region. Also called Chateau Grimaldi (genovese family who founded the nearby Principality of Monaco), was at first a fortification in the same walls would gather the Tower, the Castle and village, medieval characteristics that still can be appreciated in the current settlement. The Castle, which can be accessed by paying a ticket costs 5 euros, not proposing anything particular, unless, of course, the amazing view on the sea, Mentone, Cap Martin, Monaco. And nothing else. But that's enough!
