Chapelle de la Miséricorde


This is the origin of the Church of St. Gaetan which served as an oratory to the Theatine Fathers of Nice. It was built in 1740 and belongs to the Black Penitents archiconfrery since 1828. This is the finest examples of Baroque aesthetics Piedmont with its curved and golden color. The church is embedded in a convent which differs from it only by its bias and trefoil small windows, unlike the small oval windows of the chapel. Inside, you can admire a series of paintings representing different patterns of archiconfrery and Theatines, previous occupants of the chapel. There are also two paintings in the sacristy of the Virgin of Mercy, one conducted in 1429 by Jean Mirailhet and the other around 1515 by Louis Brea. Features: The exterior and interior architecture are dedicated to the baroque. The two masterpieces of Nice painting so-called "primitive" are representing the Virgin of Mercy.
