Cimiez Cathedral (French: Cathédrale Sainte-Marie de Cimiez, also Cathédrale Notre-Dame du Château), was the former Roman Catholic cathedral of Nice in the south of France, sited on the hill of the castle overlooking the city (the château de Nice). The bishop’s seat was transferred to the present Nice Cathedral in 1590 and the former cathedral was demolished in 1706 after suffering damage in the Siege of Nice of 1691. Only ruins remain.
