Basilica of Notre-Dame, Nice

Local nameBasilique Notre-Dame
LocationNice, France

The Basilica of Notre-Dame de Nice is a Roman Catholic basilica situated on the Avenue Jean-Médecin in the centre of Nice, in France. It is in the Neo-Gothic architectural tradition.

The basilica, built between 1864 and 1868, was designed by Louis Lenormand and is the largest church in Nice, but is not the cathedral.

Inspired by Angers Cathedral, it is built in the Gothic style. Its construction was motivated by a desire to frenchify the city after the County of Nice was annexed to France from Kingdom of Sardinia, and at the time Gothic buildings were supposed to be characteristically French. Its most prominent features are the two square towers 65 m high, which dominate the east front together with a large rose window featuring scenes of the Assumption of Mary.
