The Prince's Carabiniers


The Carabiniers on Le Rocher. In the 18th century, this building was a lodging for officers of the French garrison under the reign of Charles III. A guard of honour was created in 1870 and since 1904, the building has been the barracks of the carabiniers of the Prince. You can see a bigger photo of the building HERE - last building on the left.
