The Prince’s Palace in Monaco is a private residence,
but the State Apartments are open to visitors for part of the year.
The Palace has a long history and has been extended
and renovated several times over the centuries. Its origins date back to the
early thirteenth century – 1215 to be exact. Following a succession of
transformations, the ancient Genoese fortress became one of the most luxurious
residences of the seventeenth century, in a style extremely characteristic of
the Louis XIV era.
Prince Honoré II assembled substantial collections of
artworks here, which unfortunately disappeared during the French Revolution,
when the Palace was looted and used as a hospital for troops from the Italian
it is possible to admire the splendours of the Palace, including: the Cour
d’Honneur, the Hercule Gallery, the Mirror Gallery, the Red Room, the York
