Churches & Painted Chapels of the County of Nizza

Following the Roya Valley in Nice’s countryside, discover the hidden treasures, the quaint little villages, nestled on the footsteps of the mountains such as Breil sur Roya, Saorge, Fontan, until reaching Notre Dame des Fontaines at La Brigue. This village, built next to an antique spring offers its visitors an extraordinary and unique church. Learn about the inhabitant’s beliefs and fears of the end of the Middle Ages thanks to the painted walls with frescos of Jean Baleison.

Then, visit the village of Tende and the “Musée des Merveilles” which shelters an archaeological and ethnological collection of the population, which settled in the area between 2900 to 1800 BC and who left about 100 000 engravings.
