Situated on Quai Rauba Capeau (which is why it is often referred to as Monument aux Morts de Rauba Capeau), the Monument to the Dead also enjoys the richly historical backdrop of the Castle Hill of Nice. This 32 meters high structure was built between 1924 and 1928 (though the local authorities’ decision to built it was made in 1918), and entered the historical patrimony of the Maritime Alps Department in 2000.

The Monument to the Dead of Nice is one of the largest cenotaphs in the entire France. It was erected in the memory of the almost 4,000 locals who died in World War One. Designed by Roger Seasal, it was embellished with bas-reliefs by Alfred Janniot.
