“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

The views are spectacular, the Chapel is beautiful. Drive, though, don't attempt the walk up unless you are supremely fit!

“Wonderful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

enjoy an excellent view over Antibes, Juan and the Cap. Best enjoyed when you walk up the steep ascent from Port de la Salis.

“To the top!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I am going to second that the steps are not for unfit travelers. There is nothing worse than having to wait for people who stop every 10 steps. However, the view on top is one worth it all. It was an amazing sunset...Go up at 4:30pm and checkout the chapel. Bring a small lunch, get some icecream and wait for the sun to go down. WELL WORTH IT!

“Go here in the evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

This is great, but don't do it in the middle of the day. Wait until the cool evening and catch the sunset.

“Olde World Romantisme”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

I have always loved this ligthouse, since my first visit many years ago. 360° views all around the coast, especially if you have the courage, strength and health to climb up all the stairs, I promise you a wonderous moment
