It was beautiful although I wouldn't say impressive. Considering all the money there is in Monaco I was expecting more from it.

Built in the 19th century to replace an 11th century building. Is like the rest of Monaco,clean and picture perfect. Added attraction is the grave of Grace Kelly. Worth a short visit.

We visited here in October 2013. Up the top of the hill from the harbour is the cathedral where the graves of these revered people lie. The interior of the church is calm and serene which seems to be fitting for the final resting place for them. The graves are simple and lie next to each other. People daily pay... More

We walked up to the Palace area especially to see this cathedral. This is where the Oscar winning actress Grace Kelly is buried alongside her husband Prince Rainier. This was also the church where the Monaco royal family gets married. Lots of history here and its a well kept and beautiful church.
