Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Monaco-Ville
(4.3/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • It can be reached through the small streets of the fortress. Unfortunately failed to see the tombs of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier because a part was closed. The thing I liked besides the grandeur, the baptistery and the unusual organ all colorful, that from a modern touch of innovation in what we are usually accustomed to seeing.

  • AKA Cathédrale Notre-Dame-Immaculée; this is the place where many of the Grimaldis were buried including Grace Kelly and Rainier III. 
  • beautiful Cathedral, especially on the outside. Inside is a typical Gothic structure. In front of it people sit and rest in the summer.
