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.
