Overhanging the coastal village, the medieval village of Roquebrune appears to be standing guard. The drawbridge has long since disappeared, instead a stone bridge built in it’s place brings you over the donjon of the old fortress castle. The rampart walk is spectacular.
Climbing the steps upwards you are confronted with original arches, forged iron and charming little squares, all adding to a most pitturesque walk. On the road toward Menton one can find a 1,000 year old olive tree.
Right at the Bottom of Roquebrune, the walk continues to the sea front around Cap-Martin and to the discovery of the famous Corbusier chalet and other such incredible luxury properties.
