Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / French Riviera - Cote d'Azur / Menton / Basilica St. Michel
Rich in Franco-Roman history, the Gothic Basilica St. 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.
