Basilique Notre-Dame de Nice

Basilique Notre-Dame de Nice


Nice, France (FR)
Unlike most of the churches in the old town, which have been strongly influenced by the Italian baroque style, the lines of this building appear unashamedly Gothic. In fact it's a reproduction that only dates back to 1868 and was designed by the architect C. Lenormand! It is Nice's largest church and its first modern religious building. The church stands proud and serene in the middle of one of the city's main thoroughfares, Avenue Jean Médecin.
