Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Monaco-Ville

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.

  • Visit this Cathedral goes back to a terrible tragedy, one of the car accident that took the life this Princess of the XX th century. The place is quiet and serene despite everything.

  • Nice little cathedral on a hill in Monaco where Princess Grace and her husband, Prince Ranier are both buried. Not as large as many other cathedrals we have seen in Europe but we'll worth a view if you are in Monaco.
  • Pretty church, especially for architecture lovers due to its Romenesque / Revival style. I took a couple of photos to share its beauty with others, but taking pictures is officially forbidden up in here (which is a pity because the ambient purple lighting makes would make the photographies spectacular).
  • Such a beautiful cathedral! Is a MUST once you are in Monaco. Great place. Totally recommended!
  • Well maintained cathedral with the Grimaldis' tombs. Nice views from the entrance
  • A nice surprise to the day excursion from the cruise ship. We were lucky to be there early enough to see the interior of the church without so much hassle. No entrance fees too...a rarity among the tourist spots. Considering it is also the resting place of the late Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco. I was surprised to see how simple it was.
