Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, French Riviera, France

Roquebrune-Cap-Martin is a pretty village situated on a hilltop in south-eastern France between Menton and Monaco, 225 meters above the sea level. The town extends to the peninsula of Cap-Martin, where you will find most luxurious villas with beautiful gardens and swimming pools. This time, however, we will explore the old town, leaving the peninsula for the next time :).

Parking in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin

We park the car on a parking lot on the west side of the Old Town (P; GPS: 43.765571, 7.458405), and then go upstairs to get to the street leading to the main square.

Strolling the Roquebrune-Cap-Martin

We walk several meters down the Avenue Raymond Poincaré street and then get to interesting Place des 2 Frères (A; GPS: 43.764900, 7.458916) with a beautiful 1000 years old olive tree in the middle and the rock which perfectly fits with a castle located on the top. From the square we also have the opportunity to have beautiful views of the Mediterranean coast, including Monaco located only a few kilometers away from us.

After leaving the square we stroll narrow and winding streets, until we reach the top of the hill where the Roquebrune-Cap-Martin castle (B; GPS: 43.765301, 7.459780) from the tenth century is located. We can also find here a mini-amphitheater (C; GPS: 43.765209, 7.459315) where the views are breathtaking. Admission to the castle costs 5€.
