Each year, in December – Antibes Cathedral and Saint-Bernardin Chapel

The Antibes Sacred Music Festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary. This birthday will highlight the patrimonial treasures of the commune with exceptional concerts within the Cathedral, the Saint-Bernardin Chapel, the Notre-Dame de la Garoupe Chapel and the church of Sainte-Anne Saint-Martin in Vallauris. Masterpieces from the repertoire, chamber music, sacred voices, for choirs, orchestras and soloists, will be the highlights of this festival. It is an opportunity to discover a brilliant repertoire often featuring little-known works.
