Natural Feature
“Connue pour être l’une des 10 plus belles routes du Monde, la route du Col de Turini et ses nombreux lacets, est célèbre dans le monde du rallye automobile. Le col culmine à 1607 m et permet de relier la Bollène-Vésubie ou Lantosque à Sospel dans la vallée de la Bévéra. Départ de nombreuses randonnées, le Col de Turini est dominé par le sommet de l’Authion. L’ascension en voiture continue jusqu’à la station de Camp d’Argent (1700m- 1900m),L’attrait de cette destination est aussi le panorama, puisque Camp d’Argent est l’une des rares station de sports d’hiver avec vue sur la Méditerranée.

Church
“Cathédrale Saint Michel de Sospel is a real cathedral (!) in this small town. Due to the frontiers nearby, putting Sospel on the route between Torino and Nice, and the desertment of the shores due to pillaging from the Moors, Sospel was actually one of the biggest and richest towns in the area during the 16th to 18th centuries. Thus, Sospel had its own cathedral. The current one was built in the 17th century, and refurbished a century later. But the bell tower from an earlier church is still there. It dates from the 12th century. ”
