Discover Nisso-Ligure Baroque Tour France

Part of Savoy since 1388, the county of Nice, just like its neighbouring Liguria, is full of evidence of the religious and artistic fervour of the Counter-Reformation of the 17th and 18th Centuries. This can still be seen today in the area's rich heritage, whether in the form of simple chapels or elegant parishes, with their exuberant interior decoration embellished with flourishes of gold and stucco.
This tour, which covers the Alpes-Maritimes area (around twenty towns) and the province of Imperia in Liguria enables you to explore these treasures of popular worship.
