Die Balzi Rossi (ligurisch „Baussi rossi“, dt. „Rote Felsen“) sind an der Mittelmeerküste gelegene dolomitische Kalkfelsen bei Grimaldi di Ventimiglia Wikipedia Icon, nahe der französischen Grenze. Die Felsen enthalten insgesamt sieben Höhlen („Grimaldi-Höhlen“), die seit dem Mittelpaläolithikum als Wohnhöhlen gedient haben.

Unter Leitung des Hobby-Archäologen Fürst Albert I. von Monaco fand man dort in der nach ihm benannten Grotta del Principe bereits gegen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts in den unteren Schichten den etwa 200.000 Jahre alten Hüftknochen eines menschlichen Individuums, das nach heutiger Klassifikation zum späten Homo heidelbergensis bzw. frühen Neandertaler gestellt werden kann.

In einer anderen Höhle, der Barma Grande, wurden zwischen 1884 und 1894 bei unsystematischen Ausgrabungen sechs Skelette aus dem Jungpaläolithikum gefunden. Diese wurden mit der Radiokarbonmethode ins Gravettien datiert. Hinzu kommen die Venusfigurinen von Balzi Rossi, die stilistisch sehr wahrscheinlich ebenfalls aus dem Gravettien stammen.

Viele der Fundstücke sind im Museo Preistorico dei Balzi Rossi zu sehen.

Menton, le Bastion

Menton is "The Lemon Festival Capital of the World", located very close to the border of France and Italy and in many ways is more Italian than French. It has its own microclimate, generally milder than the rest of the French Riviera, and became in the late Nineteenth Century a place where Northern Europeans with TB came to either regain their health or to die. As a result its cemetery is filled with the graves of notable Englishmen, Germans, Russians. The old town is largely pedestrianised which adds to the charm of this sedate resort.

See

  • Jean Cocteau Museum Although it was previously in a bastion near the port, the new museum is a purpose built building designed by the Italian Architect Rudi Ricotti and houses an incredible modern interactive display of drawings, ceramics, tapestries, film memorabilia, and a large mosaic by the artist. The bastion has more pictures and entrance to this is included in the museum ticket.
  • Salle des Marriages In the town hall, the civic wedding hall is decorated completely in murals by Jean Cocteau.
  • The charming old town is compact and largely pedestrianised.
  • Basilique Saint-Michel. The former cathedral Saint-Michel is today the parish church of the city. In front of the Baroque religious building from 1675 there is a mosaic with the coat of arms of the Grimaldis.
  • Immediately adjacent to the cathedral is the Église de la Conception, aka Chapel of white penitents, built in 1685.
  • The 18th-century Capuchin Monastery L'Annonciade overlooks Menton.
  • Several impressive gardens dotted through the town including those at Garavan (Olive trees in Parc du Pian, Jardin Exotique, Villa Fontana Rosa).
  • Palais Carnolès, Museum of fine arts and open air sculpture garden.
  • Casino and the magnificent hotels Royal Westminster and Ambassadeurs.
  • Cimetière du Vieux Chateau Russian Orthodox chapel, grave of William Webb Ellis - founder of Rugby football, view over town.
