Perhaps the biggest attraction of Old Cannes, the Eglise Notre Dame d'Esperance also provides a vista of Cannes, its harbor, the Promenade of Croisette and its beaches. A very worthwhile place to visit.

This church is on a hilltop in the old part of Cannes. We went here on "le petit train" which stops here for 10 minutes. The old church has a very musty smell on hot days. The views of old Cannes and the waterfront are...More

The Notre Dame interior is a worthwhile visit especially the area in and around the grounds. There are great scenic views from the various lookout points. A very enjoyable area.

This church is nice but the view from the hill which it sits on is the real draw. Stunning views of the beach and harbour can be had from the walls of this church. Enjoy the tiny shops on the easy walk up Le Suquet...More

Right in the heart of the oldest part of Canes, way up high so not all the tourists and cruise ship people make it up that far. Well worth the hike, but if steep hills and stairs are tough for you, probably not something I’d...More

You can see the church at the top of the old town hill from almost anywhere in Cannes. It's well worth the walk up the chill just for the great views however the church itself is also worth a visit. A beautiful, calm and serene...More

It's a steep trek up through the old town to this rather sombre church with its landmark clock tower.

There is a very nice walk leading up to this church. When you arrive make sure you take in all of the views of the beach as well! This church really is something a bit different than the busy glamour of Cannes.
