Grasse Cathedral, or the Church of Notre-Fame-du-Puy, is a Catholic church in the Romanesque architectural style that was built in the 12th century.
Although today it has been officially listed as a historical monument in Grasse, it was only back in 1244 when the bishopric was officially transferred from Antibes to Grasse.
This Cathedral is composed of many different elements and artefacts, an exterior staircase, a chapel dedicated to Saint Sacrament, all built and decorated in a Lombardian and Ligurian style. The interior ceiling is also very beautiful, a little further you will find three pieces of artwork by Reubens, along with glass cases of religious artefacts.
Visit the Grasse Cathedral, appreciate its peaceful atmosphere, and admire its unique statues and decorations. The area around the cathedral offers exceptional views over the hills towards the sea as well, a breathtaking scenery not to be missed!
The Cathedral is open for a visit Monday to Saturday between 9:30 am to 11:30 am or 3 pm to 5 pm.
