Cardinal Mazarin's portrait hangs above the fireplace. While the overriding atmosphere of the interior and exterior of the palace is of the 18th century, the palace itself is not.
Much of its appearance is a result of a long evolution dating from the 12th century, overshadowed by heavy restoration and refurnishing during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Its large natural harbour ensured a steady stream of visitors from Byblos , Tyre , and Sidon. Later the Phoenicians came to trade silk, oil, and spices with the natives.
It was the Phoenicians who introduced to this area of the Mediterranean their god Melkart , later known by the Romans as Hercules Monoikos. It was after this god that the Romans renamed the area Portus Hercules Moneici , which has evolved to the present name of Monaco.
The harbour and its immediate area were given to the Genoese by the Emperor Henry IV with the proviso that the Genoese protect the coastline from piracy.
In work began on a new fortress, comprising four towers connected by ramparts protected by a curtain wall. This forms the core of the present palace.
Genoa was important in the politics of 12th-century Europe. The Genoese were a nation of merchants , and such was their wealth that they frequently fulfilled a role as bankers to the other nation states.
Two distinct camps formed: the Guelphs who supported the pope and the Ghibellines who were loyal to the imperial crown. Siding with the Guelphs were one of the patrician families of Genoa—the Grimaldi.
Throughout the 13th century these two groups fought. Finally at the end of the century the Ghibellines were victorious and banished their opponents, including the Grimaldi, from Genoa.
The Grimaldi settled in the area today known as the French Riviera. Several castles in the area are still known as Chateau Grimaldi , and testify to the strong presence of various branches of the family in the vicinity.
On obtaining entry he murdered the guard, whereupon his men appeared and captured the castle. This changed the appearance of the fortress, making it appear more of a fortified house than a fortress.
In the Grimaldi took Menton and then Roquebrune , thus consolidating their power and strength in the area. Subsequently, they strengthened not only the defences of the harbour but also their fortress on the Rocher.
The Grimaldi's stronghold was now a power base from which the family ruled a large but very vulnerable area of land.
The fortress was frequently bombarded, damaged, and restored. Gradually the Grimaldi began to make an alliance with France which strengthened their position.
Now more secure, the Grimaldi lords of Monaco now began to recognise the need not only to defend their territory, but also to have a home reflecting their power and prestige.
Throughout the 15th century, both the fortress and the Rocher continued to be extended and further defended until it became a garrison accommodating some troops.
This period saw the extension of the east side of the fortress with a three—floored wing, guarded by high scalloped walls connecting the bastion towers—St Mary M in Illustration 7 , Middle K and South H.
This large new wing contained the palace's principal room, the State Hall today known as the Guard Room.
Here the princes carried out their official business and held court. In Jean II was killed by his brother Lucien. Jean II was succeeded by his brother Lucien I.
This left Lucien I to walk a diplomatic tightrope between France and Spain in order to preserve the fragile independence of the tiny state which was in truth subject to Spain.
Lucien immediately set about repairing the ravages of war to the fortified palace which had been damaged by heavy bombardment.
This provided the security to allow the Lord of Monaco to concentrate on the more comfortable side of his residence rather than the constant need to defend it.
The courtyard was rebuilt, the architect Dominique Gallo designing two arcades , stretching between points H and C. The arcades, fronting the earlier wing by Lucien I, each have twelve arches, decorated by white marble balustrading on the upper level.
These arcades or loggias provide corridors to the state rooms in the south wing today known as the State Rooms Wings. On the other side of the courtyard a new wing was constructed and the Genoese artist Luca Cambiasi was charged with painting its external walls with frescoes.
It is thought that the galleries B to the north wing overlooking the harbour were built at this time. Further enlargements were carried out in order to entertain the Emperor Charles V in , when he stayed four nights at the palace during his journey in state to Bologna for his coronation by Pope Clement VII.
All Saints Tower was semi-circular and guarded the end of the rock promontory. Complete with gun platforms and cannon , it was connected to man-made caves in the rock itself.
Subterranean passages also linked it to the Serravalle Bastion, which was in essence a three-storey gun tower bristling with cannon.
Underneath the courtyard a cistern was installed, providing sufficient water for troops for a month siege, with a huge vaulted ceiling supported by nine columns.
Monaco was to remain politically vulnerable for another century and little building work took place from until , during the reigns of Prince Charles II and Prince Hercule.
Monaco's vulnerability was further brought home in when the Spanish installed a garrison there. Following his education in Milan , he had been cultivated by the intellectual salons of Paris.
In , heavily supported by the French, he attacked the Spanish garrison and expelled the Spanish, declaring "the glorious liberty of Monaco".
Over the following year period he transformed it into a palace suitable for a prince Illustration 9.
He commissioned the architect Jacques Catone not only to enlarge the palace, but also to soften its grim fortified appearance. The upper loggias B to the right of the entrance were glazed.
Inside the palace the State Rooms Wing was restyled and the enfilade of state apartments created.
A new chapel adorned by a cupola built on the site marked D was dedicated to St John the Baptist. This new work helped conceal the forbidding Serravalle Bastion from the courtyard, to create the lighter atmosphere of a Renaissance palazzo.
During the late 17th century and early 18th century, while Monaco was officially an independent state, it was in reality a province of France.
The lure of Versailles was greater than that of their own country. The new prince had an urbane personality and spent much time with his wife at the French court , where he enjoyed the unusual distinction of being both a foreign head of state and a peer of France.
Impressed by the palaces of the French king, who had employed the architect Jean du Cerceau to carry out alterations to the palace at Fontainebleau , Louis I used Fontainebleau as the inspiration for enhancements to his palace at Monaco.
Thus he was responsible for two of the palace's most notable features: the entrance—a huge Baroque arch surmounted by a broken pediment bearing the Grimaldi Arms Illustration 10 —and more memorable still, a double horseshoe staircase modelled on that at Fontainebleau.
A prince noted for the permissiveness of his private life, Louis I's prodigality was notorious. While visiting England in he incurred the ire of King Charles II by showering expensive gifts on Hortense Mancini , the king's mistress.
Instead Europe was immediately plunged into turmoil as the War of the Spanish Succession began. On its ceiling, Gregorio de Ferrari and Alexandre Haffner depicted a figure of Fame surrounded by lunettes illustrating the four seasons.
Antoine's marriage to Marie of Lorraine was unhappy and yielded only two daughters. However, the state of the Grimaldi fortunes, and the lack of the politically necessary approval from King Louis XIV, dictated otherwise.
Louise-Hippolyte succeeded her father as sovereign of Monaco in but died just months later. Jacques I assumed the name and arms of the Grimaldi, but the French aristocracy showed scant respect towards the new prince who had risen from their ranks and chose to spend his time absent from Monaco.
This marriage in was extremely advantageous to the Grimaldi, as Louise's ancestress Hortense Mancini had been the heiress of Cardinal Mazarin.
He was happy to leave Monaco to be governed by others, most notably a former tutor. The sick duke was allocated the state bedchamber where he promptly died.
Since that date the room has been known as the York Room. Despite its lack of continuous occupancy, by the final quarter of the 18th century the palace was once again a "splendid place"  Illustration This was only the beginning of the Grimaldi's problems.
In the leaders of the French Revolution annexed Monaco. The prince was imprisoned in France and his property and estates, including the palace, were forfeited to France.
The palace was looted by the prince's subjects,  and what remained of the furnishings and art collection was auctioned by the French government.
Monaco was renamed Fort d'Hercule and became a canton of France while the palace became a military hospital and poorhouse.
Much of this fortune had been depleted by the hardships of the revolution. The fabric of the palace had been completely neglected during the years in which the Grimaldi had been exiled from Monaco.
However, by the time of Florestan's accession, Monaco was once again experiencing political tensions caused by financial problems.
These resulted from its position as a protectorate of Sardinia, the country to which it had been ceded by France following the end of the Napoleonic wars.
Florestan, an eccentric he had been a professional actor , left the running of Monaco to his wife, Maria Caroline Gibert de Lametz. Despite her attempts to rule, her husband's people were once again in revolt.
Menton and Roquebrune broke away from Monaco, leaving the Grimaldi's already small country hugely diminished—little more than Monte Carlo.
Florestan died in and his son, Charles, who had already been ruling what remained of Monaco, succeeded him as Charles III Illustration The Guard Room, the former great hall of the fortress now known as the State Hall , was transformed by new Renaissance decorations and the addition of a monumental chimneypiece.
Charles III also made serious attempts to find the various works of art and furniture looted, sold and dispersed during the revolution.
Charles III was also responsible for another palace in Monte Carlo, one which would fund his restorations, and turn around his country's faltering economy.
The first Monaco casino had opened the previous decade. Through the casino Monaco became self-supporting. By the time of Charles III's death in , Monaco and Monte Carlo were synonymous as one and the same place, and had acquired, through gambling, a reputation as a louche and decadent playground of the rich.
It attracted everyone from Russian grand dukes and railway magnates, often with their mistresses , to adventurers , causing the small country to be derided by many including Queen Victoria.
The successive rulers of Monaco tended to live elsewhere and visit their palace only occasionally. The Monte Carlo Palace is offering 60 spacious and comfortable studios, two room apartments, three room apartments, and exclusive penthouses.
All apartments are fully equipped, modern and functionally furnished. The Spa and beauty center indoor, have a wide range of special treatments which will confer energy and vitality.

Large apartment, far from center and next to railway. Stayed in a 7th floor aparment that could accommodate 4 persons. A lot of space, lots of storage, fridge, kitchen, balconies, two king size beds.
Not far from Romexpo and Herastrau Park. Cons: the property is located far from center, in a remotely area next to a busy railway. There are no restaurants and coffee-shops within a walking distance around the place.
However, if you come by car is not so bad, the parking lot is generous. It's still a good choice for those traveling with family or a large group of friends and have a car.
