The State Apartments

The Princes Palace is the private residence of the ruling Prince but the State Apartments are open for public visits part of the year.

 

The original fortress and ramparts were built by the Genoese in 1215 and throughout the centuries was transformed into one of the most luxurious residences in the style of Louis XIV. Prince Honore II was responsible for re-assembling the rich collections of art, which had been auctioned off during the French Revolution when the Palace was turned into a hospital for the Italian Army.

 

However Prince Rainier III is credited restoring the Palace to its former glory and the magnificent state in which it can be seen today.
