Monument aux Morts

Located at the foot of the Château Hill in Nice, the Monument to the Fallen on Rauba Capeù is a majestic construction, built in honour of the people of Nice who died in the First World War.

As imposing as it is moving, the Monument to the Fallen on Rauba Capeù nestles across from the Port de Nice, just at the foot of the Castle Hill. At 32 metres high, it is one of the biggest in France. It was built between 1924 and 1927 on a former stone quarry. The edifice pays tribute to the people of Nice who died during the First World War. Dug straight into the rock, the monument is spectacular and is emphasised by the huge central urn on which the names of the deceased are engraved.
Between two high reliefs representing war on one side, peace on the other, are inscribed the emotion-laden words: "The City of Nice to its sons who died for France: Remember the deeds your fathers achieved in their time and your glory and name will be immortal.” At its entrance, five steps represent the years 1914 to 1918. The Monument aux Morts de Nice obtained the precious 20th Century Heritage label in 2000 and was registered as a Historical Monument in 2011.
