Sainte-Anne Chapel

  • Built in 1935 by the Nice architect Jean-Baptiste Pachiaudi (1865-1947), a former pupil of Fine Arts, and his colleague and Turin friend, Angelo Guasco, the Sainte-Anne chapel blends harmoniously into a rich garden and hosts artistic exhibitions.

    Surmounted by a dome, the circular chapel is preceded by eight Siena travertine columns. Inside, woodwork of Piedmontese origin adorns the altar and the rounded walls. The trompe-l'oeil landscapes, the colored stained glass windows and the paintings of the vault complete an angelic decor faithful to the Italian neo-classical tradition.
    Located behind the chapel is a Contemporary Art Gallery, open in summer.
