Monaco Cathedral, built in 1875, rests on a site of a 13th century church that was dedicated to Saint Nicholas. The cathedral is the place where many of the Grimaldi's are buried, including Grace Kelly and Rainier III.

Saint Nicholas Cathedral was constructed in a Byzantine-Romanesque style with white stone from La Turbie, a region in France. Highlights inside the cathedral are the great altar and the Episcopal throne in white Carrara marble.

View location in Monaco-Ville, Principality of Monaco.
