Inside the cathedral so many things connected to royal family like everywhere in old town. The cathedral is built in classic French church architecture style.

We didn't have very long here because our day in Monaco was short, but it was worth seeing. The dome is impressive.

If you're a Princess Grace buff, make sure you visit the cathedral. Nice memory of her and Prince Rainier there. The cathedral's organ is an amazing sight to see. The interior is amazing. It may seem small but alot to see.

Worth a wander around this beautiful cathedral. Doesn't take long to walk round unless you want to worship whilst you are there.

This is a peaceful place away from the bustle outside. Quite modern in some respects with a number of important tombs. Well looked after.

We were 'doing' Monte Carlo in a day, so we're glad of the tranquility this offered. Lovely location in the old part of town. A nice place to contemplate.
