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. With our custom trip planner, Menton attractions like Basilica St. Michel can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
