Overview

Standing proudly in the Albert I gardens in the heartof the city, and directly opposite the sea, is the memorial that commemorates the annexation of Nice to France (also known as the Monument du Centenaire). Incredible though it may seem, it's now roughly two centuries since Nice became French! This memorial, testimony of the inhabitants of Nice decision to join France, was unveiled in 1896. The sculpture - recently restored - that stands at the top of the garden completes the surrounding harmony. Admission is free.
