The Cimiez Monastery: calm, beauty and meditation

Assembling the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption and the Franciscan Museum, the Cimiez Monastery is worth a visit after visiting the Arena.

In this monastery from the XVth century, you can admire three major primitive paintings from the Niçois Louis Bréa: a Pietà, the Crucifixion, and the Deposition.
Also worth noting: the imposing Baroque altarpiece carved in wood.

The museum traces the Franciscan life in Nice since the 13th century and houses frescoes and interesting works of art.

The garden of the Monastery is beautiful, with a view that embraces much of the city, to the sea.
