Neighborhood: Old Town

The Saint-Suaire Chapel - home to the Red Penitent Order - can be found in the old town, close to Cours Saleya. In common with all penitent brotherhoods that formed during the 14th Century, the red penitents are a lay association practising religious devotion as well as offering help to those in need. In addition to the chapel's architecture, art lovers will be able to enjoy some very beautiful paintings inside, particularly the 'Saint-Suaire' (1660), a canvas by Nice artist Baldoino, and Paul Emile Barbéri's 'Saint Trinité'(1840).
