  • The chorintic entrance tells you that here is a church, actually a Jesuit chapel from 1612 and already 30 years after, you had bought the neighboring property and expanded the chapel to a church. One had the decoration from the cathedral in mind, and a quite nice spectacle is the smaller parish as well. Added 4 chaprels with paintings. In 1773 the pope lifted the order of Jesuites, and the church became a Royal school. Only in the 1800 century could it be reopened as a church. The church is quite quickly seen.

  • The church is very spectacular in its lilac-blue color and is a gem hidden in the labyrinth in the streets of old Nice. Inside, the church admires the lushness of the baroque, its blue with gold interior, airiness and spaciousness. The Church began to be built on this site by the Jesuits (The Society of Jesus) at the very beginning of the 17th century and it is considered to be the first baroque model in Nice. However, later the Jesuits began persecution, the order was abolished and the church was renamed. Then the facade was remade. I am sorry that I read later on a visit to Nice that it was necessary to look at the dome of the cathedral, supposedly it is covered with colorful figures, in the form of a tricorne. Don't repeat my mistake, it's interesting and unusual.
