    The Cathedrale Sainte Reparate is located in the Place Rossetti, the central square of Old Town. The 18th century bell tower can be seen and heard from afar. The exterior is impressive with many columns and ornamental carvings, plus a dome of ceramic tile. It is a nice visit and a couple of photo session.

    Cathedral St Reparate

    You will find the Cathedral in the heart of the Old Town in Place Rossetti, built in the 17th century it is beautiful inside and out.

    Sainte Reparate is the patron saint of Nice. Martyred in Palestine in 250AD aged 15, the legend is that she was washed ashore one autumn evening in a small boat guided by a dove.

    Afterwards perhaps have an ice cream at the well known Fennochio on the square.
