Located approximately halfway between Palais Lascaris and Opera de Nice, in the center of Vieux Nice, the Cathedral of Sainte Reparate or, briefly, the Nice Cathedral, dates back to the 17th century. It is dedicated to Sainte Reparate, a martyred virgin whose mortal remains are sheltered here.

It took almost 50 years for the construction works to be completed (from 1650 to 1699). The building is an exquisite expression of the Baroque style, and it is overtopped by an 18th century bell tower. Inside the cathedral, visitors can admire 10 chapels and three organs, as well as the altar which shelters the remains of the patron saint.

The cathedral has been enjoying the statute of historical monument since 1906.
