Bonjour! This week’s carte postale features Le Pont Saint-Louis (St. Louis Bridge) in Menton, located in the South of France.

I recently acquired this vintage postcard and then this week I read a wonderful post by Rebecca of Rebecca Goes Rendezvous about her visit to the French Riviera town! (You can read her post here >> Destination: Menton, France)

I took it as a sign urging me to visit! In the meantime, I’ll take it as a sign telling me to feature this postcard this week, so here it is!

Did you know?

🇲🇨 Until 1848, Menton was part of the Principality of Monaco

  • During its invasion of France in June 1940, Italy captured Menton

🍋 The lemon became the symbol of Menton since the town is located in the only region in France where lemons can grow

For more information:

The Lemon Festival – Fête du Citron

Until the next Wednesday Postcard, à bientôt!
