This beautiful Baroque style church in the heart of the old town is at the junction of the Rue de la prefecture and the rue de la poissonnerie. It is very plain and unimposing on the outside but a Baroque masterpiece inside. There are a series of beautifully decorated side chapels with paintings, sculptures and baroque decoration.

Simple on the outside, beautiful on the inside. In the old part of Nice, while wondering through the village be sure to stop in and see what is hiding inside.

We were wondering the old town , and came across St Rita, It was stunning inside, worth a look round, Don't judge a book by its cover, out side it's very simply.

This is a small Baroque style church of great beauty. Enjoy the architecture and the special alter to St. Rita. There are works of art on the walls which would be greatly enhanced if they were cleaned.

Located in the old town, this chapel had such a peaceful atmosphere and it was lovely to sit there and look at the wall paintings in the coolness.

The Baroque style interior of this Old Town church is almost over the top. It is so ornate as to semmingly cover every square inch. The paintings alone are worth seeking out this church.

When walking in Vieux Nice, turning from one alley into another small lane, I found this Chapel of Sainte-Rita by chance.. Just out of curiosity I had a look inside. And you wouldn’t expect it from the unassuming plain exterior but this church has a really beautiful baroque interior. Well worth a visit. Have a look at the photos.
