A view of the Cathedral


Taken from the port of Fontvieille, you can see Monaco's beautiful cathedral on le Rocher. A view of the front of this building can be seen by clicking on the link.

It is here that Prince Rainier and Princess Grace were married and are buried.

A magnificent building. Princess Grace, Grace Kelly, was a stunning movie star. We were all surprised when she married and pleased at the same time.

Very nice composition, Jilly. The church at the top and the magnificent natural setting below work well together and make this an excellent photo.

I love the view from below the cliff.

The photo taken last July looks so summery, but then, so does this one. You certainly have a wonderful climate.
The history and purpose of that tunnel has posed an interesting question also. It looks like people are standing at the entrance ?
I guess I will find the answers en Septembre.

In my next life, I want to be an international playboy living in Monaco. Is that asking too much?
