Notre Dame de Bon Voyage, Cannes

Notre Dame de Bon Voyage, Cannes (must see)

Just in front of the Palais des Festivals, on Merimee Square, stands the largest and most valuable church in Cannes. It was built in 1865 in place of an older church by the same name and designed by Vianay Laurent in a faux Gothic style. The main entrance and portal above it, designed by ceramist and artist Roger Capron, makes the church truly unique.
