The Cimetière du Château in Nice, France, stands on the old citadel of Nice. Today, some sections of the massive walls of the ancient fortress remain. The fortress, which was built in the 16th century, was once one of the most secure strongholds in France. The cemetery itself was founded in 1783 and has 2,800 graves. It is as much popular for its function and history as for the scenic views of the city that affords.

  • A beautiful cemetery with the graves of lots of interesting people including Emil Jellinek-Mercedes (1853–1918) who created the Mercedes motor car company. His grave(family plot) can be found at (what's 3 words) gashes.ramming.employ Well worth a visit if you have already climbed to the top of the hill for the views of Nice.
  • Very nice cemetery, it is worth the visit. Very peaceful, with beautiful views of Nice
