History of Saint Jean Cap Ferrat
It was certainly used by the military since antiquity, but it would seem that no trace remains of its distant past.
Only a Saracen tower and a church built onto an ancient ruin still remind us of Saint Jean's ancient history.
During the entirety of the Middle Ages it was used by the Knights of Malta.
It was only in modern times that Saint Jean Cap Ferrat became a tourist destination and the location of historic homes such as Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild.
