Located in the heart of the historic centre, the Cathédrale Sainte-Réparate (Cathedral of Saint Reparata) was completed during 1699, and is consecrated to the patron saint of Nice. This is the most important catholic cathedral in the city. As a baroque style building, the facade has three sections which accompany a slender bell tower that was added in the middle of the 18th century. It has a Latin cross ground plan, so it's not surprising that the architect, Jean André Guiberto was inspired by a Roman church for his design. The exterior could be considered as sober but don't let this fool you, as the best part is found inside the cathedral: ten beautiful baroque chapels of which marble plays the leading role; an impressive high altar, various paintings and stained-glass windows that give it a really characteristic touch of colour. You're bound to go by this cathedral many times, given its location, so go in and take a look around!
