Monaco Cathedral is a 19th century Roman-Byzantine style cathedral church built on the site of the former parish church of St Nicholas in Monaco, built close to the Palace of the Princes. The church is constructed out of white stone from La Turbie, nearby in France. Today, the cathedral is a popular tourist attraction in Monaco.
Monaco Cathedral - Art
Monaco Cathedral is quite new, but has still managed to collect a number of important religious artefacts and works of art. Among them are:•Altarpiece by Nice painter Louis (or Ludovic) Bréa (c. 1450 - c. 1523). Incomplete, with 4 of the original 22 panels missing, this altarpiece adorned the original church of St Nicholas that stood on this site.
•Virgin Mary with Child and Rosary, probably from the 14th century but badly restored over the years.
•Crimson velvet canopy made in 1712 bearing the coat of arms of Prince Antoine I (1661-1731) and his wife Marie de Lorraine (1674-1724).
•Chapel of Saint Sacrament with a beautiful 17th century altar made from gold plated walnut.
•Baptismal Chapel and Font probably 17th century and from the original church of St Nicholas.
Stained glass windows in the nave show women of the Old Testament while stained glass windows of the lateral naves represent scenes of the life of Jesus and the Mary.

Here you have had a difficult light but you succeeded in showing us an interesting and impressive picture. A truly beautiful nave shown in a wonderful light and in combination with the excellent note an allover good contribution.
Have a nice day,

Its a well balanced composition. The shining black & grey pillars form a frame to the main altar.
The details are clear and the colours in the available light conditions are fine. Would have relished to have seen the cuppola with the fresco - without the glimmer of light on it.
Thanks for sharing.

Wow, this is stunningly beautiful and your photo is among your best. The symmetry and light are truly spectacular and the unusual icon of Christ (it seems Byzantine) is wonderfully realised. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.

sempre difficili gli interni delle chiese a causa dei chiaroscuri, ma devo dire che sei riuscita a mostrarci nel modo migliore questo interno bizantino della cattedrale di Monaco e con chiarezza di dettagli in tutte le zone dell'immagine.
A nice day
