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.

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.

This is a lovely Cathedral both on the outside and inside. Resting place also of Prince Ranier and Princess Grace. As you walk round you can imagine their wedding day and all the splendour surrounding it. It's quite a moving moment as you stand in front of their graves in the Cathedral

This beautiful church is more of a chapel for the ruling family in that it contains the graves of generations of rulers. It isn't forgotten that this church was both the place of princess Grace's marriage and of her final resting place. Worth seeing and remembering.

Perched in the Old Town, you'll find this pretty Cathedral which is worth a stop-over, taking 10 minutes to simply sit in the shade of the trees across the road and enjoy the sight. There are thousands of tourists so don't stay too long - take you photo and keep walking up towards the Palace :)
