Monastère de Cimiez

The Monastery of Cimiez includes a church, a cemetery and a convent where some Franciscan friars still live. The church has significant paintings by 15th Century local artists the Brea brothers. The convent houses the Musée Franciscain which is decorated with 17th Century frescoes, many documents and a recreated cell showing how the austere religious life is lived. The chapel dates from the 17th Century and the lovely gardens have sweeping views across Nice.

The painter Henri Matisse is buried in the cemetery of the Monastère Notre Dame de Cimiez. His grave is signposted 'sépulture Henri Matisse' from the cemetery's main entrance (next to the monastery church on av Bellanda). Raoul Dufy (1877 - 1953) is also buried here.
