  • You have to park nearby, and go discover it on foot, rather than park at its feet, it is richly decoded outside and inside.

  • Very nice building from the inside but not welcoming as we were received like flies. Not recommended to visit this building.

  • Very beautiful. Women wearing shorts grab a sheet to drape around your legs to meet dress code policy. No speaking or photographs inside the church either. We were able to snap one interior photo from behind a pillar. Highly recommend the trip out to see it. Free entry.
  • We walked from the coast. Great way to walk through various parts of Nice. The neighbourhood where it’s located isn’t the most appealing to the eyes however it was worth it. The exterior is very photogenic. Woman cannot be uncovered however they do supply scarfs to cover up properly.
