Princely Palace of Monaco
Monaco, Monaco-Ville

The Princely Palace of Monaco is the official residence of the rulers of Monaco of the Grimaldi clan for over seven hundred years. The financial and political situation of the Grimaldi house is reflected in the architecture and interior of the palace: the walls are covered with priceless frescoes, exquisite furniture is inside.
The palace was originally founded in 1191, as a Genoese fortress. He was often bombarded and withstood many sieges - stronger neighbors constantly tried to take Monaco into their own hands. Therefore, throughout almost its entire history, the palace was not only decorated, but also strengthened.
Today, it still serves as a princely residence, but ordinary tourists can visit some of its halls. Among them are the Blue Salon, where official receptions are held, and the Throne Hall. The Napoleon Museum and the Museum of Antique Cars are also open at the palace.
