Cathedrale de Monaco


Churches and Cathedrals

The Cathedral in Monaco also known as the St Nicholas' Cathedral, is an historic landmark and a major attraction for tourists in the Principality. Completed and consecrated in 1875 the cathedral rests on the site of the former chapel dedicated to Saint Nicholas and constructed in 1252.

This beautiful cathedral is also the final resting place of many of the Grimaldi family including Princesse Grace and her husband Prince Rainier III. Many people choose to visit the cathedral to pay their respects to one of the most glamorous and loved couples in Hollywood and indeed the world.

As part of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese, Mass at St Nicolas' Cathedral plays a major part of all religious and public holidays including the Festival of Sainte Devote (patron saint of Monaco and Corsica) on 27th January and Monaco's National Day (Independance day) every 19th November.

Monaco Cathedral has several beautiful and ornate features including the altar, throne made from white marble from Tuscany and the pipe organ, comprising some four keyboards which was introduced in 1976. There are also some wonderful stained-glass windows of Sainte Devote and you can light a candle and say a prayer for loved ones at the feet of our lady full of grace.

Winter opening hours: 0800 - 1800

Summer opening hours: 0800 - 1900

Mass at the Cathedral on Sunday is at 1000 conducted by Father Phillipe Blanc. From September to June the children's choir perform for every mass.
