Mount Boron is considered to be the hunting ground of the very first men of Nice, whose traces of more than 400,000 years have been found on the site of Terra Amata near the port of Nice This park was not always as green as it is today, it was deforested in the Middle Ages to prevent the Saracens who gave their name to the hill (Boron derived from Moron which is the name used in the local language to designate the Moors) from hiding there. Today Mount Boron is one of the only hills in Nice to have a forest park. Culminating at an altitude of 200 m, this forest of umbrella pines, eucalyptus, olive trees... is the perfect example of a Mediterranean forest, a perfect place to picnic and play bowls. This park is not only rich in nature, it is also rich in history, you have the fort of Mont-Alban a military fortification dating from the 16th century, it is a testimony of the defensive system of the city of Nice today almost destroyed. You will discover a magnificent view on the roadstead of Villefranche which has always been a major stopover for fleets transiting the Mediterranean, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and Nice with the magnificent blue of the Bay of Angels, further south you will also have the battery of Mont Boron accessible by numerous hiking trails.
