Very beautiful cathedral just a few minutes walk from the Prince’s Palace. It’s where the Gramaldis as buried and where Princess Grace and Prince Rainier III got married

Very beautiful church, iconic with regards to the royal family in Monaco. Lots of people taking photos of Princess Graces grave, that's just weird!

This stunning cathedral isn't actually as old as it appears, but it's a definite highlight of Monaco, with stunning stained glass. Completely free to visit and photography is permitted.

This Cathedral is situated in the middle of a short walk from the palace to the Aquarium. Well worth a visit even if you just go to pay your respects to the late Princess Grace and Prince Rainier.

Photogenic from the outside, free to enter. A short stroll from the oceanographic museum. This is worth calling into if in the area.
