Photographer's Note

The church Notre-Dame of the Immaculate Conception, which was formerly a cathedral, underwent numerous reorganizations during its history. The beautiful facade, of ochre color and classic style, possesses wooden leaves sculptured.
The cathedral of Antibes was built on the foundations of a heathen temple. In 1746, the war of succession of Austria caused damage on the cathedral, which must be thus reconstructed. In this opportunity, Louis XV offered the facade of the cathedral.
