It's wonderful to see the Monegasques supporting the breast cancer cause. The palace looked beautiful lit up in pink tonight - would've been great to see it in person!

It was looted and left in a terrible state following the French Revolution thankfully its been lovingly restored.

The Palace Day looks like an interesting visit.

The Palace joins the International Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

I can't recall if the Princes Palace put up a Christmas Tree in Palace courtyard?

Earlier this week, Prince Albert visited the restoration site of the "Grand Apartments" of the Prince's Palace.
The Sovereign Prince, who pays particular attention to the heritage and historical enhancement of his residence, decided, almost five years ago, to carry out a fundamental restoration of the painted decorations, exterior and interior, of the Palace; but also to renew the presentation of public visits, open from April to October.

I had been wondering why it was taking so long to complete the restoration work in the palace courtyard. Now I understand as I didn't realise all of the state apartments are being done as well. There are only a limited number of craftsman in the world who can do this kind of work so it probably won't be fully complete for a while yet.

It is wonderful that Prince Albert has so much eye for his patrimonium.

The murals are magnificent...yes, it seems it turned out a bigger job than originally expected. Kudos to P Albert for protecting his family’s heritage and history in this way.

Possibly the best sited palace in Europe.

I agree. If memory serves, didn't Rainier III undertake to locate the remains of various Monagasque rulers and their consorts, and have them re-interred in the vault of the Cathedral? This took place around the time of the birth of Princess Stephanie in 1965.

In any case, I hope this interest in and respect for the preservation of the Grimaldi patrimony is in turn passed on to Prince Jacques.

The murals are astonishingly beautiful.

A lot of restoration and rebuilding was done during the long reign of Rainier III,the palace had been devastated during the French Revolution and some parts were demolished including the southern wing which was rebuilt.

I am not sure. The Grimaldis themselves have houses in the nearby Provence to escape the hectic in the tiny principality. They have a pied-à-terre in Paris and of course the Château and Domaine de Marchais in Picardie (close to Belgium) , which surface of lands and forests is much bigger than the whole principality at the Méditerranée.

That's me not being clear. I meant in terms of its picturesque location - the scenic combination of being set high with hills behind and the Mediterranean in front.

Lovely chateau!

Marchais is one of the most enchanting castles I have ever seen. I read somewhere that it dates back to the Renaissance king Francis I of France?

Yes. The best spot on the town's citadel. Absolutely true
And a magnificent (and big!) palace.

Picture.

I wonder if the birth of Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella precipitated this extensive restoration work. I'm not suggesting that PA wouldn't have taken care of such things anyway but perhaps the birth of his heirs concentrated his mind a bit more on what he wanted to leave the next generation. Apparently Roc Agel has also had a massive overhaul recently so both it and the palace should be in splendid condition by the time PJ inherits them.
