Misericorde chapel

Interesting
This chapel, built in 1740 from plans by the Italian Guarini, belongs to the Black Penitents. Volutes (spiral scrolls) and S-curves decorate its bowed façade and oval oculi. This church is an undeniable celebration of Baroque. Push open the door and your breath will be taken away by the throng of angels flying among all the gilding and imitation marble. Don't miss the two Primitive Nice retables in the sacristy by Jean Miralhet and Louis Bréa.
