A neo-gothic marvel in historic Menton 

Built in 1867, Saint John’s Anglican Church is a neo-Gothic gem that reflects the British overseas community’s historical presence in the area. It was one of three churches constructed in response to the growing British trend in Menton during the 19th century.  

This architectural masterpiece, completed in 1868, sadly lost its slender bell tower in the 1887 earthquake and it was never reconstructed. The church has, however, recently undergone extensive renovations, with the apse adorned in pre Raphaelite-style marble and Italian mosaics.  

It remains an enduring testament to Menton’s rich history and architectural heritage, and is well-worth a visit if you are in the area.  


Make sure you’re never left out of the conversation.
