St. Martin St. Augustin Church, Nice

St. Martin St. Augustin Church, Nice

This is a beautiful old church that can be found on the northern end of the Old City part of Nice. It is often overlooked as a tourist attraction, probably because of it location at the edges of the historical part of town.

The house of worship was constructed in 1837. It is a classic example of Italian Baroque architecture, which was quite the rage of the time of the building of the site. On the site, you will want to see the Pieta that was done around the 15th Century. It was designed by Louis Brea. He is also well known for his work on the Monetary owned by Franciscans, called Cimiez. The work is done in the Italian Renaissance tradition, and is quite stunning to say the least.

One of the other things that you will want to know about this old church is that it has hardly changed since its last renovation in the 1800s. It is not often that you can still view a church in Europe that has not undergone some type of modern redesign for construction for the sake of preservation.
