Vieux Nice seems to literally burst with places of worship. Located on the north side of the historical center of Nice, the Church of Saint Martin and Saint Augustin does not necessarily enjoy a wide tourist visibility, despite its obvious architectural merits.

Built in 1837 in a Baroque style, under the influence of Italy’s most fashionable trend at that time, the church is indeed worth visiting, one of its inner chief highlights referring to a 15th century Pieta attributed to Louis Brea, an Italian Renaissance painter who had also contributed to the decoration of the Franciscan Monastery of Cimiez.

The church was declared a historical monument in 1946, which is an acknowledgment of its cultural worth.
