Fodor's Expert Review Basilique St-Michel

Menton Church

This majestic basilica dominates the skyline of Menton. Beyond the beautifully proportioned facade—a 19th-century addition—the richly frescoed nave and chapels contain several works by Genovese artists plus a splendid 17th-century organ. Volunteers man the doors here, so you may have to wait for the church to open before visiting. The parvis plays host to concerts during the Menton music festival every August.
