It is dedicated to Notre Dame of the Annonciation, invoked by sailors and persons in mortal danger.
Built on the site of a small fortified town when Menton first
came into being, it has been home to the Annonciades,
nuns of the order of the Virgin Mary, since 2000.
birthplace of Menton, it is now a haven of peace and contemplation.
