- Up on the hill in Cimiez, within the 17th-century monastic buildings, you'll find Nice's Franciscan museum, which charts the history of the Franciscan way of life from the 13th Century to the present day. Visitors can admire the numerous works of art and various religious documents. In the 15th-17th century church, it is worth taking time admiring the works of painter Louis Bréa: his portrayal of a recumbent Christ as well as a large baroque altarpiece in gilded wood. An archaeological museum, the Chagall museum and the Matisse museum are all nearby.
