“Loved Roquebrune”

Chateau de Roquebrune-Cap-Martin

Attraction details
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We were on the Corniche drive going toward Menton when we stopped in Roquebrune. It was wonderful. We walked around the lovely town and then went to the fortress. We were taking photos of the beautiful homes in the village when we met a lady there. She said, go look at "Lilly", it's also beautiful", so we did. It was her house! Anyway, it was a fun interlude talking with her and visiting this lovely village. There was virtually no one there. We and about four other tourists in about three hours. Yes, definitely go!

Forget all about Eze. This place is as beautiful and charming, far less crowded, extremely affordable and easier to reach! Even the stunning views here are free whereas in Eze you've got to pay for everything, even the views...

Situated 300 meters high in altitude, the village of Roquebrune boasts a fortress of historical signifigance. A military fortress built around 1157, one can visit several areas within the fortress such as the prison, the great room, the kitchen, etc. This was also the summer residence of Monseigneur Augustin Grimaldi during the 1500s. Standing in the remparts, one is offered a beautiful view of Cap Martin.

Well worth the walk up to the old town of Roquebrune and once up there treat yourself to a visit to the Chateau. Magnificent views from this historic ruins. See the amazing outdoor theatre up there, too.

Really impressive medieval fort sitting on top of a chalky cliff, dominating the hamlet of Roquebrune, lending it its name. Viewable inside and outside, through tortuous stony paths criss-crossing the castle area, which is remarkably lively with small restaurants. Tiny, but surprising.
