Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / French Riviera - Cote d'Azur / Nice / Monastère de Cimiez
Monastère de Cimiez was founded in the ninth century by the Benedictine monks of the Abbey of Saint-Pons. The complex includes the 15th-century Church of Our Lady of the Assumption and a Franciscan museum, which traces Franciscan life in the region since the 13th century. The church holds three paintings by Louis Brea. The cloister hosts classical music concerts, and the garden contains exceptional floral decorations. In the cemetery, seek out the tombs of painters Henri Matisse and Raoul Dufy, and Nobel Prize winner Roger Martin du Gard.

Monastère de Cimiez reviews

The old church and the monastery gardens are worth a visit. Even though the gardens are not their best in January, the views are spectacular. There is a current exhibit of hundreds of creches from..... more »
Lovely building and beautiful, tranquil garden. Unfortunately no photos allowed inside the monastery church - pity as it has a magnificent painted ceiling. A walk around the gardens is a relief from the busy city
This entire area itself is worth a visit to when you come to Nice. They have many museums nearby, the monastery and the cemetery to visit. The area is surrounded by incredibly pleasant parks with spectacular views. All around peaceful area to have a stroll.
