The lovely clock/bell tower of the Notre Dame de L’Assomption church in Eze, France. Such wonderful rich ochre against the clear blue sky.
The church was built in 1764 and completed in 1778. An Italian architect Antonio Spinelli designed it’s exterior in a Neoclassical style while the interior is beautiful Baroque.
The fortified medieval village of Eze is perched on the narrow rocky peak of Mt Bastide over 500 metres above sea level up in the hills overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It’s situated between Nice and Monaco.
Quite a tourist attraction now, it has been beautifully restored.
I climbed the Chemin de la Mer footpath up the hills from Eze-sur-Mer where I had got off the train from Nice a short distance away, not actually realising the only way to get up there from the coastal Eze was pretty much a mountain track! and of course I was the only one on it!
I swear I badly needed oxygen after an hour of climbing but wow once you got there, what a treat.
Make sure you get there early though, I arrived just before 9am just as the shopkeepers were opening up and before any other tourists got there so i was able to savour the beauty and atmosphere.
