  • Beautiful cathedral in the beautiful town of Vence. A great place to visit on a hot summerday to enjoy the rather cold atmosphere.
  • Excellent Cathedral situated in the centre of Vence. It has a Mark Chagall mosaic under the rear window. Upstairs there is a large collection of exquisite 16th century wooden stations of the cross carvings, look out for the cheeky misericords. If you are lucky you might meet The exceptionally knowledgable female guide who will provide a comprehensive history to the collection.
