So this is a cathedral? Sorry to say, but I'm from Antwerp and I have the coolest cathedral . This one does not reflect the cathedral look and feel. But you will visit it, because it is loaded with historical paparazzi stuff... Princes getting married,...More

Gorgeous cathedral. Worth the visit. It's located between the ocean museum and the prince's palace. The walk to it is also nice: seems like an old market

Very pretty cathedral, where Rainier III and Grace Kelly maried and are burried. Well decorated with nice paintings.

This is a haven of peace and calm amid the hustle and bustle of Monaco. Lots of interest including royal graves (including Princess Grace's) as well as a fascinating new and a little bit controversial organ. Pop in and spend 20 minutes of quiet time.

This is the most undecorated cathedral I have ever visited, bare grey stone with a few stained glass windows and a small mosaic depicting christ at the end near the altar, it is simply beautiful. There are also niches where you can light a candle...More
