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.

  • Grace Kelly and Lenny's tourists stopping every three years old is asleep, the Principality of Monaco in the Principality of Monaco's Cathedral near the Palace. Once inside the Palace, the majestic history of the Principality of Monaco for even the feeling of walking a horse.

  • All ready the Oceanographic Museum this magnificent cathedral offers a nice idea of Mediterranean Christian architecture. With magnificent altarpieces you will be charmed by the calm and serenity of the place. Very popular tourists should go late in the day or early in the morning. Attention, visit not allowed in offices. Check with the tourist office.
