  Monuments
Château des Terrasses:


Built ca. 1890 for the British banker William Mendel in a leafy 2,000m² park, Château des Terrasses offers an exceptional view. He had his hour of glory when, in 1895, Grand Duke George Alexandrovich, brother to Tsar Nicolas II, rented the villa for the winter.


Acquired by the Municipality in 2006, Château des Terrasses was perfectly restored, its rare comfort and beauty give visitors the impression of discovering a precious jewel enriched by the patina of the years.


The Château can be used for organising various events. The terraces, garden and two reception rooms can host conventions, promotional event or private receptions in a modern luminous Belle-Époque setting, open on the Mediterranean.





Notre-Dame-du-Cap-Fleuri church


Notre-Dame du Cap Fleuri was designed by the architect Paul Chevalier and consecrated in 1910, at the instigation of the Canon Sajot. The nave is neo-Gothic in style.


The cross and Christ above the altar date from the 17th century.


The ten stained-glass windows representing Saints were blessed in 2001.


New bells, “Notre-Dame du Cap Fleuri” and “Clothilde” joined “Étiennette” for the church’s centenary.


Notre-Dame du Cap Fleuri was not consecrated until 18 April 2010. On this occasion, His Lordship Louis Sankalé, Bishop of


Nice, deposited relics of several saints in the altar table: Philip the Apostle, Luke the Evangelist, Pope Pius V, Saint


Bishop Athanasius and Saint Vincent de Paul.
