Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / French Riviera - Cote d'Azur / Nice / Eglise Saint-Jacques-le-Majeur
Admire ornate Neoclassical exterior and lavish Baroque interior of Eglise Saint-Jacques-le-Majeur. Built by the Jesuits in the 17th century, the church once dominated a small square. Its distinct blue and yellow facade still stands out, even though sandwiched in a tight space between two other buildings. Every surface remains ornately decorated. Cherubs, ornaments, stucco, gilding, false marble, medallions, bas-reliefs, frescos, and oils abound, so take time to explore the features of the cozy 19th-century interior.
