As we stand here, in front of the magnificent Cathédrale Saint-Nicolas de Nice, let me whisk you away into a world of architectural marvels, fascinating history, and stunning beauty.\n\nNow, I know what you're thinking.

It's true! The first cathedral was built here all the way back in the 11th century, but it sadly fell into disrepair over the centuries.\n\nIn the mid-19th century, a competition was held to design a new cathedral, and the winning architect, Louis Lenormand, took inspiration from both the Gothic and Romanesque architectural styles to create this stunning masterpiece that stands before us today. The mix of styles gives it a unique flair that sets it apart from other cathedrals in the region.\n\nBut here's the cherry on top, my curious friends. Have you ever heard of Gargoyles? Those fantastical creatures that perch on the rooftops of old Gothic cathedrals, notorious for their elaborate stonework and mysterious symbolism? Well, the Cathédrale Saint-Nicolas de Nice has its own peculiar twist on these mythical creatures.\n\nInstead of gargoyles, this cathedral features \"grotesques\" – quirky and whimsical characters that have been hand-carved into the façade. Legend has it that each grotesque represents a prominent figure from Nice's history, bringing a touch of local charm to the otherwise traditional architectural style.\n\nSo, my dear explorers, as we take a moment to marvel at the intricate details of the cathedral, I challenge you to spot as many of these delightful grotesques as you can. Look closely at the façade, peer around the corners, and see if you can unravel the tales of this whimsical cast of characters that adorn this magnificent structure.\n\n"},{"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FxJPpOa2Pj1qrl5YtaRWv%2F666.jpg?alt=media&token=75fb07a1-47c9-432b-ab4a-e51b1d23a5e4"},{"type":"text","content":"Once you've taken it all in, we'll move on to our next adventure.
