Vieux Château Cemetery

The cemetery is composed of superimposed terraces, each devoted to a different nationality or region. Among its "wealthy Anglo-Saxon residents", note the tomb of Reverend Webb Ellis, the man who was said to have invented rugby, as well as a few Russian princes with legendary names (Troubetzkoy, Volkonsky). From here, enjoy a fine view of the old town, the sea and the coast from Cap Martin to Mortola in Italy.
