  • This cemetery, which I did not know, is a place steeped in local and world history. Many illustrious names are included, it makes us learn a lot about menton life. The terraced layout is original, it's a visit that did not leave me indifferent. In addition, the view of Menton and its surroundings is sumptuous: be sure to go there if you can.

  • Beautiful old tombs, partly in 1788 and with pictures. Good view in the east and west direction over the bay.

  • If you are in the Menton area, don't hesitate to go to the Old Cemetery. It is an interesting place with fabulous views of the bay. Highly recommended before sunset and enjoy the quite streets of the Old Town
  • Arrived at the gate at 4PM and it was closed, even though it is supposed to close at 5PM. No explanation provided!
