The Fabron hill

The Fabron district is located in the western part of the city of Nice (between Madeleine and Caucade), it starts from the seaside and climbs on the hills by the Avenue de Fabron. Other accesses are by Lanterne avenue, Napoleon III boulevard, Montreal boulevard, Corniche Fleurie avenue, Sainte Marguerite avenue, Vallon Barla avenue.

This area of ​​Nice began to develop only from the 13th century with the establishment of vineyards, then olive trees in the 15th century. The name of Fabron comes from the term fabrones (blacksmiths), they were responsible the  protection of the fortification walls (barri) of the west side of Nice against the attacks of pirates. During the Revolution, agricultural properties belonging to the patrician families (Lascaris de Ventimille ...) are sold to local notables. And so in the nineteenth century, the Fabron hill became the favorite area of wealthy families (Gastaud, Jaume, Gambart, Verani, Sasserno ...) who establish their great villas.

Nowadays, Fabron is a hilly residential area with many green areas (including the park Carol de Roumanie), castles (Leliwa, Fabron, Barla), many villas and pretty properties, even if the latter decades have seen many modern buildings and prestigious residences, some with swimming pools and tennis courts (Roseland Abbey, Château Sainte-Anne, Les Belles Terres ...).

Near the highway and the Eco-Valley, the western area of Nice also benefits from the presence of small shops, academic institutions (Faculty of Letters, IUT), a museum of Naïve Art (Anatole Jakovsky), municipal archives (the Marble Palace and its French garden), an abbey (former rose garden where the name of Roseland) ... and the Nice International Airport.
