Saint-Paul by the Old Road of Saint-Paul

Hike to the village of Saint-Paul via the Malvan valley.

Leave Vence by the avenue Colonel Meyère then the Saint Paul road and the Chemin de la Pouiraque. You will the reach St Elisabeth Chapel, containing frescos discovered by chance in 1924, probably dating from the XVth century and unfortunately largely damaged. You will then turn right to take the old St Paul road. The latter crosses the Avenue Emile Hugues then goes down steeply to reach a treatment plant located at the bottom of the hill of the Malvan. Pass around this treatment plant on the left and cross the Malvan on a foot bridge, built recently. The path becomes very pleasant, mainly the forest, dominating the valley of the Malvan, which extends between the road Vence-Saint Paul and the road Cagnes-Vence.Keep on walking on your right, you will notice that there is a well-kept oratory representing Jesus in the tomb. If you carry on this path which rises gradually, you will be on the road Vence-Saint Paul, 100 metres from the village and the bus stop.


Free of charge.
