Le Vieux-Nice

Due to its centuries-old membership of the Duchy of Savoy, a state that is largely open to the Italian peninsula, Nice is one of the few cities in France to possess a homogeneous and substantial Baroque heritage.

This religious and civil heritage is concentrated mainly in Old Nice. Its creation, a veritable stylistic revolution spanning more than a century and a half (1642 - 1790), was so radical that it obliterated all previous architectural evidence.
