The Saint-Philippe district

The Saint-Philippe district is a hilly area dependent on the West Center Territory of Nice, inhabited by some old local people and especially by many young people and students.

The Saint-Philippe district has a beautiful natural park of 15 hectares covering most of the hill. It is planted with eucalyptus, ancient oaks and magnificent olive trees, including a millennium, with a panoramic view on the city, the international airport, the hills and the sea.

The oldest building of the district is the chapel Saint-Philippe-Neri which was completed in 1612 on behalf of a rich local man, Ponce Ceva. It is listed as a historical monument since 1964. The painter Joseph Fricéro and his wife lived in this area from 1852 to 1870 and they received Alexandra Feodorovna, widow of Nicholas I of Russia, in their property located at 49 avenue Estienne d'Orves (formerly Candia avenue).

The area is served by buses n° 64, 71 and 75 as well as the Pignes train which stops at the Saint-Philippe station. There are also some schools : the kindergarten and primary school Saint-Philippe, the Estienne d'Orves high school, the Imperial Park high school, the Law University. It exists an association of defense of the districts of Magnan, la Conque, Estienne d'Orves superior, place and hills St Philippe.

Several recent residences, including the Blue Line and Nicea Vista condo, have changed the configuration of the Saint-Philippe district which remains dominated by tipical houses, but there are also buildings of the 60s and other designed by Rometti.

There are few shops in the Saint-Philippe district, but you can find a very good butcher's shop, a small supermarket, a real bakery, a roaster, a snack bar, a pizzeria, and of course the excellent Italian restaurant "La Locanda" owned by the young and talented chef Paolo Bonizzoni.
