Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Monaco-Ville

(4.3/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
A Roman Catholic cathedral and burial place of the country's royalty, Saint Nicholas Cathedral exudes a sense of hushed solemnity amidst shining marble floors and delicate frescoes. Constructed on the site of Monaco's first parish church, which was built in 1252, the cathedral was consecrated in 1875. An ornate and light-filled building, this cathedral was the site of both the wedding and the burial of the celebrated Grace Kelly, who married Prince Rainier III here in 1956. Take some time to walk around the cathedral and visit the chapels of the relics of St. Devote and St. Roman and the chapel of the Holy Sacrament.

  • What a gorgeous place. Quiet and serene. A place for contemplation. The resting place of Grace Kelly and her husband the King of Monaco. Fresh flowers on the tomb every day. 
  • The Cathedral where they married members of the Royal family, which is very impressive and from there you can also see the sea

  • Many people watch grace-Queens related attractions as Monaco is the place from the sea in the historic Cathedral. With a solemn feeling.
