Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Monaco-Ville

4.3
#3 of 15 in Things to do in Monaco-Ville
Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • First time I enter this Cathedral while I often come to Monaco! I discovered the tomb of Princess Grace and prince Rainier! A very nice place with impressive architecture.

  • St Nicholas Church is the Cathedral of the Principality of Monaco. Inside, behind the altar, we find the tombs of Queen Grace and Prince Rainier III. This is not a gorgeous Church, full of frescoes, but the towering arches, statues and the play of light on the floor (created by stained glass Windows) makes it very nice to visit.

  • Esquisite ! NB : I got bonus when I visited this cathedral. Take more steps down to the Southwest (walk along the zebracross) and you can find a "hidden gem" (read: breathtaking view) of Mediterranean Sea
  • Great photo opportunity with a beautiful cathedral
  • The burial place of Grace Kelly. The architecture is stunning!
  • Very nice church inside and outside also.
  • I have no words how to comment all this! Just go there and see
