The basics

Monaco Cathedral is officially known as Cathedral of Our Lady Immaculate but is sometimes called Saint Nicholas’ Cathedral, after a small chapel that once stood here. The current cathedral was built in 1875 and consecrated in 1911, yet it showcases a variety of different architectural and decorative styles, including an altarpiece by Louis Bréa that dates to 1500. The white stone structure draws influence from the Roman-Byzantine tradition.

In more recent history, this cathedral is the place where Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier III in 1956. It is also the couple’s final resting place–inside you can visit their tombs, as well as the tombs of many members of Monaco’s royal dynasties. Today it continues to be the focal point of events held for the royal family. Its close proximity to other key sights makes it a highly worthwhile stop on a tour of the Monaco-Ville quartier.
