Neighborhood: Mont Boron
Overview

On Mont Boron you can't help but notice the large pink castle amidst the throng of stunning villas. It's a rather peculiar sight, like something created out of a fairy tale as a treat for a good little girl. This fascinating structure was built in 1858 for Robert Smith, the English colonel of the Indian army which not only explains where the name 'Château de l'Anglais' (The Englishman's Castle) comes from, but also the astonishing architectural blend of Gothic forms and Hindu palace influences. Nowadays it is divided into private apartments.
