The medieval Village of Eze

On a spur dominating the sea and land to prevent invasions, the highest village in europe, perched 427 m high in the Mediterranean sky, was built during the 8th century. Protected by a fortress located at its top, the houses cling to this narrow rocky hill. It’s by foot we venture into this fascinating “eagle’s nest”, through narrow, picturesque and paved streets, where artists or artisans are displaying their works of art of craftsmanship in cave-like small boutiques.
