11km north of Menton, via the D2566.
Castillon is a small village situated on the Italian border north of de Menton.
The history of Castillon was very turbulent between the 12th century and 1951: destroyed by two wars and an earthquake, the village was entirely rebuilt each time.
Castillon is consequently a modern village and you will discover recent constructions on the hill-sides.
Castillon today supports an extensive art industry thanks to "Les Arcades du Serre" which groups artists of all descriptions including painters, stained-glass window makers, sculptors... etc.
You can admire their works thoughout the year but especially during summer when the "rencontres d'artistes verriers contemporains" is held.
