Third visit and always life enhancing. The cemetery next door is also strangely rejuvenating. Peaceful and tranquility sadly missing in most of the world. Gardens are a delight.

Beautiful church in stunning surroundings. Lots to do up here, there's the graveyard with Henry Matisse, the gardens, the park and the ruins. Well worth a visit. Small donation if you feel like giving.

not a must have but you should combine it with a little walk to the Parc des Arènes de Cimiez. Nice little beauty of the city and some impressive graves on the cemetary next to it.
