Visit Monaco Prince Palace

From ancient Greek times to the end of the Roman era, the rocky promontory and natural harbor of Monaco had been mentioned in the literature of the time because of their strategic location. In 1633, the Spanish King permanently recognized the title of Prince of Monaco to replace the Lord of Monaco, making Honore II the first Prince of Monaco. In the main courtyard, he extended the state apartments, which also concealed the Serravalle Tower behind the building erected on either side of the new Saint Jean Baptiste chapel. He then added the grand royal entrance leading into the courtyard. These improvements took 30 years to complete, but they made the Palace of Monaco one of the most remarkable royal residences of the 17th century. Today, from June to October, the Palace is open to visitors. The Prince Palace is a visit not to be missed when coming to Monaco.
