Quai Rauba Capeu

Located at the foot of the Castle Hill, the Quai Rauba Capeu offers one of the most beautiful views of the city and is now not to be missed for its giant "I Love Nice" hashtag.

Quai Rauba Capeu, which extends over a length of just 300 metres, is the extension of the Promenade des Anglais and the Quai des Etats Unis. In Niçois, its name means "steal hat" because its furthest point over the sea is also where the wind blows hardest. It is certainly the most beautiful view of the entire city. From there, you can admire the Promenade des Anglais in its entirety, as far as the runways of the Airport. Indeed, the giant "I Love Nice" hashtag was recently installed in this perfectly chosen location. With the Baie des Anges as a background, this is certainly the city's most photographed work over the past few years.
In addition to this modern sculpture, there is a series of other more historic points of interest along the Quai. Among them, the imposing Monument to the Fallen, dug directly into the rock, as well as the sundial painted directly on the ground. Less well known, it is also here that Notre Dame des Fonds Marins [Our Lady of the Seabed] is submerged 15 metres under the surface of the sea. Quai Rauba Capeu was awarded the Prix Grand Public de l’Architecture in the Urban Planning category in 2004.
