Small but full of treasures
Jul 2019
The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Nativity is the smallest cathedral in France. From the outside is looks tiny, but that’s just because other buildings have been erected around it. There’s a bit more space inside.
It’s a beautiful building, constructed from the 9th century on top of a Roman temple. It has incorporated stones from religious buildings in the Gallo-Roman and Mérovingian (500-800AD) and Carolingian (800-1000AD) periods.
The Baptismal mosaic by Marc Chagall is worth making a point of seeing, while upstairs are the treasures, the wooden sculpted stalls (Bellot, 15th century) and for a period the huge statues of the wooden/polychrome Stations of the Cross.
Information brochures are available in French, English and German.

Old Church in town
Jul 2019 • Couples
La Cathedrale Notre Dame de la Nativite de Vence locates in the town is small but need some sort of redecoration. The Chagall mosaics inside the church is stunning and becomes the treasure here. Worth to have a look inside the church during your visit here.

Underwhelmed
Jul 2019 • Couples
Happened upon this church while wandering the beautiful old town area of Vence. Very dark - crumbling walls and columns. Seems to be in need of some TLC. Many come here for the Chagall mosaic.

Two views: inside and outside, watching a local wedding

The other reviews tell all that is required; except to endorse this as a place worth visiting, especially the very many wooden religious carvings. Don't have to be devout to appreciate beauty!

Peaceful and Exciting at the sae time
Jan 2019 • Couples
This is a fantastic place with a wealth of treasures which would put other museums and cathedrals to shame.
Highlight for us was a room with amazing dioramas, really detailed, never seen anything like them before. There was a very knowledgeable guy in there explaining everything to us.
Also a collection of religious garb, indeed a real treasure at every turn. The Chagall mosaic was stunning too.

Small but beautiful
Nov 2018 • Couples
It may be Frances smallest Cathedral but it has some eclectic artefacts. Above the font is Chagall’s captivating mosaic. Upstairs are 17C wooden polychrome statues of the Crucifixion and ancient carved choir stalls.
Peaceful and well worth a short time to visit

Small Cathedral & lots of stories back to the Romans
Oct 2018 • Friends
One of the smallest cathedral of the area, worth seeing, and looking into the stories of where it was built on. Vence, used to be dedicated to God Mars by the Romans. Pity this cathedral is poorly lit inside. Not much history written there about it.

Smallest Cathedral with a Chagall Treat!
May 2018 • Couples
Dating back to the 11th century, the Notre-Dame de la Nativité Cathedral is the smallest Cathedral in France!

It may be small, but it is also both beautiful and interesting with a 5th century sarcophagus, collections of painted wooden statues and intricate paper sculptures, and the amazing carved timber stalls.

The crowning glory of the cathedral and not to be missed is the stunning 1979 mosaic by Marc Chagall located near the Baptistery “Moses saved from the Nile”
