Located on the southeastern French just between Monaco and Nice, Èze Village represents the beauty of the French Riviera, a must see. Èze has been described as an “eagle's nest” because of its location overlooking a high cliff 427 metres (1,401 ft) above sea level on the French Mediterranean. It's so high that the light ochre church within (Notre Dame de l’Assomption built in 1764) can be seen from afar. An Egyptian cross inside the church suggests the village's ancient roots, when the Phoenicians erected a temple there to honour the goddess Isis. The motto of the village is the phrase: "Isis Moriendo Renascor" (meaning "In death I am Reborn") and its emblem is a Phoenix perched on a bone. Èze Village was first populated around 2200BC and was later then occupied by many people like the Romans, the Moors and others, each of them leaving behind them what the Village is today, a Old Village engraved by a rich history. The oldest building in the village is the Chapelle de la Sainte Croix and dates back to 1306. Its Jardin botanique d'Èze is known for its collection of cactus and succulents, as well as its panoramic views.
