Architectural mastery

Built in 1864-1868, this Neo-Gothic basilica is the largest church in Nice. Inspired by Angers Cathedral, its construction was motivated by a desire to "Frenchify" the city after the County of Nice was annexed to France from Italy. Its most prominent features are the two 65-meter tall towers, which dominate the east front, together with a large rose window featuring scenes of the Assumption of Mary. During clear days, you can see beautiful ocean views from the top of the towers (look for the elevator hidden in a corner). At night, the basilica is illuminated magnificently, creating an ideal setting for its chamber orchestras and summer concerts.
