  • Place du Palais (Palace square), is a beautiful square with history, surrounding the Grimaldi Palace. It is a large plaza, located at the top of the rock. The Palace square is located in the magnificent and picturesque old Monaco town. The views from this square are privileged, referred to the Royal Palace, you can see the mountains in the South of France, and the glamorous ports, with its luxury boats. Thanks to this location, in the historical centre of the city, the Palace Square, is a good starting point for a visit to this small and glamorous Principality. !! Safety pin!.
