(3.5/5 based on 460 reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: wildlife areas
Saint-Martin-Vésubie is a commune of the Alpes-Maritimes department in southeastern France.GeographySaint-Martin-Vésubie is established on the edge of a glacial plate.HistorySan Martin first appears in recorded history in the 12th century, although there are archaeological remnants of a Romanized indigenous population dating back to the 1st century.The medieval castrum, or fortification, extends along a cliff overlooking Valley of the Madonna through which ran the old Salt Road that extended from the Piedmont to the port city of Nice.It was part of the historic County of Nice until 1860 as San Martino Vesubia.In World War II, the Alpes-Maritimes were occupied by the Italian Fourth Army November 11, 1942. The sympathy of the Italian authorities caused the area to become a safe haven for thousands of Jewish refugees. Jews were able to achieve a modicum of safety and legal residency under the Italian authorities, who relocated them to Saint-Martin-Vésubie. The sympathy of the Italian authorities was mainly due to the work of the Italian Jewish banker Angelo Donati, who was living in Nice and convinced them to protect the Jews from French and German persecution.After the Italian Armistice in September 1943, and under direct threat from the German authorities, a thousand of Saint-Martin's Jews made the climb up the Old Salt Road mountain passes in the Gesso Valley and what they thought was the safety of Italy. All the remaining Jews in Saint-Martin were arrested and transported to Auschwitz.
