Overlooking the tiny village, this church is a marvel. There are no crowds touring Sospel, no tourists to spoil the adventure. See the ruins of the castle (which are seamlessly integrated into the modern architecture) and this cathedral which sits right next to the movie theater. an hour drive from Nice, and so worth it.

In the square up from the river. Notice the belltower built earlier then go inside to see the wooden panel altarpiece. Note the height of the building. Look around here and elsewhere in the region. Any higher cathedrals?

We could not go inside because it was closed all the time. The square is very quiet but has got a most interesting atmosphere.

Sospel Cathedral is a typical Cathedral of a tiny town. If you have time and go to Sospel, you can enter to visit it. It is a beautiful Cathedral, but it is not different to others. It is a simple visit.

We popped in to Sospel and had a nosy at the cathedral which is under renovation. Once finished this will be breathtaking. We had a peek throught the door and were taken aback by how ornate and opulent the interior was - a stark contrast to the shabby square and buildings just off the square. Hopefully once complete the rest of the shabby areas get smartened up and the visitors flock to this quaint town.
