on the side of Monaco’s legendary Rocher, the Oceanographic Museum founded by
H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco’s great-great-grandfather Prince Albert I has
been watching over the oceans for more than a century. The Museum is
renowned throughout the world for its expertise and has more than 6,000
specimens on display.
Discover the old town through the narrow alleyways from the middle ages which lead to the picturesque Place Saint Nicolas and Placette Bosio, the Chapel of Mercy, Palais de Justice and the Cathedral, a Roman-Byzantine style building built in 1875.
Located on the southern flank of the Rocher, the Zoological Gardens were
established in 1954 by Prince Rainier III.
