Promenade des Anglais in Nice France: Place to Refresh

There is a remarkable history behind this magnificent French landmark. Promenade des Anglais walking path was first built in 1820 with the support from hero Reverend Lewis who was an active member of an Anglican church.

This landmark was first named ‘Camin des Angles’ before the name of ‘ Promenade des Anglais’ was established in the 1860s which is used to this day. Since that year the economy has grown and the city became a ‘tourist destination’ that attracted wealthy European aristocrats to travel there to warm up in cold winters. These travellers helped to transform the city economically for it to become one of the most attractive landmarks internationally.
