  • It is located in the old Nice, straight Street. She is opposite the Sainte Réparate Cathedral 200 metres. For Niçois, is the Church of the Gesù. It dates from the 17th century. Church is baroque architecture. When we went there all the statues were covered with a purple veil. This really masked the statues, which were barely visible. It was a week before the week Holy, during the week before Palm Sunday so without apparent reason. I did not know why... The vault of the nave is very beautiful. There must be six chapels. It is a building to visit to find the calm and serenity, less visited than the Cathedral close. Photos allowed without Flash.
