The Church of Saint Michael, built between 1764 and 1777, is in the baroque style of Nice. It is dedicated to the Archangel Saint Michael, Prince of the Celestial Militias who defeated the Dragon.
Formerly, La Turbie had a small Romanesque church, located on the site of the present cemetery, in which it had become difficult to practise religious worship. The community therefore decided to build a new church using the stones from the ruined Trophée d'Auguste (mined in 1705). Work on the construction of St. Michael's Church began in the summer of 1764 under the direction of the "capo maestro" Antoine SPINELLI, a native of the Swiss Ticino, one of the cradles of Baroque art.
