Place Masséna, Nice

The Place Massena is the heart and soul of Nice as well as its geographic center.

Conceived to cover the Peillon river, Place Massena was constructed from 1832 to 1850. The architect, Joseph Vernier, modelled the Italianate porticos that fringe the square on the Rue Rivoli in Paris.
