L'eglise Saint Giaume, Nice

Neighborhood: Old Town
Overview

In sharp contrast to the solemn exterior, the interior of this church is full of cabled columns, polychromatic marbles, gilding and mouldings. Pure baroque! The adjoining chapels are as richly decorated and the most inspiring of these is that dedicated to Saint Rita, the much venerated patron saint of hopeless causes. This saint occupies a very special place in the hearts of the people of Nice since it is their city's patron saint.
