Commanding presence. incredible beauty...then you enter, and it starts to grow on you. The architecture. The sculptures, paintings, gold work, nooks and crannies, crowds...then a quiet prayer chapel within, a techno-looking organ. Go. Take your time.

You must visit the Cathedral if you visit Monaco, beautiful and serence, you will also find the grave of Princess Grace here along with other members of the Grimaldi family. The organ in the cathedral is to be seen to be believed. It really is a must to visit here if in town

It a beautiful peaceful cathedral where Princess Grace was married and buried. The graves of Princess Grace and her husband were side by side. All around the city are plaques and a little history lesson on princess Grace.

Well worth visiting with beautiful views from the front steps. The resting place of Princess Grace and Prince Ranier III along with ancestral members of the Grimaldi family. Their resting places are simple and tasteful, decorated with flowers and a lovely wedding sketch between them. You feel comfortable walking round and photographs are allowed.

The final resting place of Princess Grace, amongst other Royalty from the Grimaldi family. This is a beautiful little cathedral. There is artwork around the outside as well as a modern looking organ. If there pay a visit.

This visit was a bit emotional for me as I remember watching the wedding of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier when I was a pre-teen. We located her burial space in the cathedral, alongside that of her husband and had a few moments of silence. The Cathedral organ is magnificent and once again, the views from the front steps looking... More

This cathedral, unlike many others, fits well in its environment, not trying to overwhelm other structures. The resting places of Ranier and Grace are both simple and very dignified.
