Cathédrale Sainte-Réparate

This imposing cathedral is one of Old Nice's most iconic monuments. It stands on the essential Place Rossetti, popular for its restaurant terraces and the famous ice-cream shop, Fenocchio.

Built in the second half of the 17th century, it was consecrated as a cathedral in 1699. Today, it has become an essential monument in Nice. Its location on one of the busiest squares in the Old Town allows thousands of passers-by to admire its majestic beauty every day. Behind its impressive Baroque architecture nestle ten chapels as well as three organs. Everything was built in a style inspired by Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome. If you look closely, you will realise that it is built in the shape of a Latin cross oriented to the East.
In addition to being the Old Town's largest sanctuary, it is also the headquarters of the diocese of Nice. Sainte-Réparate Cathedral is a place of prayer for the people of Nice as well as a tourist highlight not to be missed in the heart of the city of Nice. It was registered as a Historic Monument in 1906. It was also raised to the rank of Minor Basilica in 1949, the same as the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.
