Cannes: Notre Dame de Bon Voyage (Our Lady of Good Voyage)

About Notre Dame de Bon Voyage:

What was once a small chapel and fishermen’s shelter in the 15th century later become Notre Dame of the Seaside, then Notre Dame of Bon Port and finally the church Notre Dame de Bon Voyage at the end of the 19th century, in designed its current form by the architect Laurent Vianey.

Over the years time to its toll on the building, but a restoration project undertaken by the Mayor of Cannes and the Heritage Foundation between 2018 and 2019 has resulted in the cleaning and repair of stained glass, vaults and columns and the restoration of the monumental chandelier, as well as repair of the facade.  Access for people with reduced mobility was added, and then finally the bells were returned to service.


Weekday masses at 18:00, except Mondays;  Sunday Mass is at 10:30 but check their website for any changes..

An interesting note:  the church was the first stop of the Emperor Napoleon on his return from Elba on 1 st March 1815.
