St. Etienne Church, Nice

St. Etienne Church, Nice

This local church is dedicated to St. Stephen. It is located very close to the famous train station located in town. You will need to travel to the intersection of Avenue de la Liberation and the Avenue Malaussena to find it. This particular location is in the new part of the city of Nice, which has been undergoing a lot of growth recently.

The church is very modern in design, and helps to accentuate the newer style architecture that has happened in this section of the city. There are two sections, often called colonnades, that make up the central structure of the building.

Perhaps the most striking part of this art deco style church is the stained glassed windows that adorn the structure. There is a pleasing design of flowers built into the windows, which are very harmonious with the geometric patterns that are also included in the windows.

If you visit the church in the morning, you may also want to visit the marketplace that happens on the Avenue de la Liberation every day of the week. It makes for a nice morning tourist stop that can be done easily in two hours.
