  • must immerse in Nice; far from the bustle of downtown, city or sea climb the Hill of Cimiez; you will find a bunch of things to see on a perimeter of a few hundreds of meters. a museum Matisse of the ruins of arenas ruins archaeological one Garden Grove very RESTful and... e monastery Franciscan, with his small but beautiful church gardens, with panoramic view of Nice but very nice, calm and the monastery itself who visits his second floor forming Museum; Ah yes, the Franciscans, c ' is advocating the total counting order, so don't expect to see ors and gilding, and other objects ostantatoires; everything is simple and... of two things one whether you're a believer or atheist, or else you are disappointed with the few items or you feel a good being inside of you reading the life of Francis and the visit of the cells and prayer rooms; in this case you have certainly won something in your day to do and redo; less expensive (free) as a relaxation session or a psypour make you positive

  • In addition to the gardens that dominate the city visiting the Church allows to discover, with nice lighting, (paying certainly 0,50 EUR but effective) three beautiful large altarpieces of the Niçois artist Brea (late 15th) orders of the Franciscan so established in the old Nice community or worked the painter. (The Franciscans have retreated on the Cimiez monastery to escape the abuse of Moorish incursions). The monastery also contains a small museum dedicated to the discovery of the Franciscans, very well designed, modern and fast visited. Discover just as much as the paintings of Brea.

  • If you're going to repeat Monastere ximiaizi into this small hotel, located in the right side of the Church. It gives us some history of the monks and their beliefs, show that they lived in one of their cell and I know of at least 20 lives there, but now there are 5 lives on the floor below the Museum. Some works of art from the past. Of course, if you're in the Church is worth a visit, gardens and cemeteries
