St-Michel-Archange basilica

Interesting
This Baroque church with a two-storey yellow and pale green façade is the largest in the region. The Latin Cross interior, inspired by the Annunziata basilica in Genoa, has been decorated in sumptuous style by Menton artists such as Puppo and Vento. Note the funerary chapels of local and Monaco notables.
