A true jewel of the Riviera, nestled between Menton and Monaco, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin is a magnificent location perched high above the Mediterranean. With its natural, unspoilt beaches and breathtaking views, Roquebrune tells a story, bridging the past and present, from its medieval village to the Cap Moderne. One not to be missed!


“The walk along the coastal path is truly serene. You can feel the Mediterranean. Just a few steps lead directly to the sea, inviting you to take a dip. It’s as if time stands still.”

Cap Martin Fort

In remembrance of history

Built in 1930 as part of the Maginot Line, the fort bears witness to the harsh reality of the Second World War. 343 soldiers and 11 officers used to live here, completely self-sufficient! Combat blocks, barracks, an infirmary and a museum of weapons illustrate how this underground unit operated. “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” wrote George Santayana. A visit to the site is a must if you don’t want to forget! The site is looked after by the AMICORF association in Menton, which organises visits every weekend (bookings can be made at the Roquebrune-Cap-Martin Tourist Information Office).
