The Basilica of Saint-Michel-Archange of Menton is a minor basilica and a Catholic parish church located in the heart of the historic center of Menton. Majestic stair ramps provide access.
Prince Honoré II and Nicolas Spinola, bishop of Ventimiglia, laid the foundation stone for the church of Saint Michael in 1619. Opened for worship in 1653, the new building was consecrated on May 8, 1675. The large bell tower was erected in 1701-1702. The facade was completed in 1819.
After the earthquake of February 1887, the parish church was completely restored.
On March 26, 1999, Pope John Paul II elevated the church of Saint Michael to the rank of minor basilica.
