Monaco CathedralFree: All time

Built in 1875, using white stones from La Turbie, on the site of a 13th century church dedicated to Saint Nicolas, the Monaco Cathedral is an impressive monument. This is where Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace got married and it houses the tombs of the former Princes of Monaco. Pontifical services take place on the major religious festival such as the Feast Saint Devote (27th January) and the National Holiday (19th November). Today, this Roman-Byzantine-style building houses the burial places of past sovereigns. The Monaco Cathedral is located not far from the Prince’s Palace.
