Stone steps lead up through the town to the Église St Michel, a magnificent building constructed in the 1750’s in the Italian Baroque style. It it worth venturing inside to discover the exquisite artwork which the church houses. It is no surprise that Villefranche-sur-Mer is the inspiration of many artists.
