Notre Dame Auxiliatrice de Nice Church, Nice

Notre Dame Auxiliatrice de Nice Church, Nice

This very old church is the home of one of the smallest parishes in Nice. You can visit the location on Don Bosco road, and it is located near the high school there. It has a fair bit of historical significance though, as it represents the very first church built in the country by the Salesian religious order. The group was organized by Don Bosco in 1859 in Turin.

The designer of the church was Jules Lefebvre. It was also worked on by Marius Deporta. It is noted in the some of the historical documents surrounding the construction of the building that the designers wanted to make it look a lot like Notre Dame Raincy Church of Auguste Perrett.

The architecture is can be classified as art deco. In looking at the outside of the building, one might think that they were visiting a villa of France. Once you get inside, though, you will find one of the largest sanctuaries of any church in the city. The painting of the Way of the Cross that was done on the inside was the inspiration of Eugene Doucet. It took over ten years to paint. You will also want to take note of the beautiful and colorful ceiling of the church. It has a blue and gold colored cross painted across a total surface area of over 2600 feet. It is quite breathtaking.
