Journée Patrimoine Monaco

Agenda

Heritage Day " Women and Heritage"

26th European heritage days
From Sunday 26 September to Sunday 26 September 2021

This event, which has become unmissable, will highlight the women and the diversity of the Principality's heritage.

Historical anecdotes, original activities and little-known places in the Principality will be on the programme for this unique day. For over twenty years, Monaco's European Heritage Day, coordinated by the Department of Cultural Affairs, has enabled visitors to discover the Principality's tourist sites and invited them to take part in exceptional visits to places that are usually closed to the public.

Whoever enters the Casino de Monte-Carlo does not only get the chance to win at the gaming tables, but enters a legend. The neoclassical architect created more than just rooms, but enchanted environments, extraordinary spaces, where artists could express themselves with uncommon freedom in their inspiration, media and forms. 

His contemporary, Anatole France, understood the profound significance of these spaces: 'To play', he wrote, 'is to go hand in hand with destiny'. The painters, sculptors and gilders have endeavoured to glorify the figure of the woman, the goddess of fortune at the entrance, and the ideal of beauty and happiness represented by the three graces of the Salle Blanche. Moving from one room to another, from the Atrium to the Americas, Europe and the White Room with its spectacular terrace overlooking the Mediterranean, visitors feel as if they are living in a never-ending dream. Just when they think they have seen it all, they push open the majestic doors of the incredible Salle Médecin, named after its Monegasque architect: a room of surreal dimensions, a tribute to life itself, symbolised by the vast paintings of the four seasons.
