Architecture of Monaco
Although some old ruins do exist in Monaco, such as the city
walls and some towers, the city's look didn't develop until much later and
today it is essentially a modern city with high rises providing as many water views
as is possible.
There are two buildings of architectural note however. The famed Monte Carlo Casino
(1858-1863) was modeled after numerous buildings and inspirations, making the structure
fairly unique. The second building of note is the Prince's Palace, which was
founded 1215 as a Genoan fort, but has adopted every architectural style since that
time, giving the building Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque features among others.
