It has a divo and Jacobo sign on this church. The church is great and I love the colour of it. It’s a small church too.

While exploring Nice's Old Town, we initially walked right by this Roman Catholic church, sandwiched between two other buildings. But on our return, we spied the gray-blue and yellow structure with its Corinthian facade and Palladian windows and decided to enter for a quick look....More

Old town is pretty small, there's hardly room for the few churches we found. However, the church and site seems to be multi-tasking as Divo Jacobo (which, we assume, may be Italian for Eglise Saint-Jacques, Eglise du Gesu, and Eglise Saint-Jacques. At the end of...More

The church is built in a mountain, so for going there you must take a bus from the city center... or walk. There is free the entrance. Go ealy because there is a lot of people, and the view is very impresive in that place.

The church has a Baroque architecture. Looking at the building, one would clearly notice the similarities between this church and the Church of the Gesù in Rome. The Nice church was influenced by the Piedmontese baroque style with the constraints of a Roman edifice. I...More

Tucked away in a non-descript alley, this church was a wonderful surprise. Inside the walls are continuous frescos and bas-reliefs with lots of detail in its decorations. The use of gesso and gilt on the fluted pilasters brings light to the interior. The trompe l'oeil...More

The church was very ornately decorated. Outside of the church it lists the individuals who had died during World War I.

Stumbled upon this church while disappointed after finding the Cathedral closed because it closed early on the Saturday before Easter. But I was so happy to see this church instead! A beautiful baroque church with lots of color and ornate decorations on the inside. I...More

Walking into the Old town, found the church that says on the front: Divo Jacobo Majori Apostolo. This is a Catholic church. Its not big, small but quite ornate. I especially like the preacher's podium that have the arm sticking out holding a cross. Its...More
