Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Monaco-Ville
Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
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.

That Yes, it has a very modern organ, that nothing is said with the environment, but that is spectacular. I guess that you a brushstroke of the kitsch of the country. The most significant of the temple... If it may mean, the burial of Grace and her husband Raniero. Little thing for a religious building of a cathedral level.show original
