A history that continues to this day, with some of the famous names in the world of entertainment performing in Monaco's concert halls.

The new face of Monaco


Monaco is constantly evolving to adapt to both present and future challenges. The Monte-Carlo Beach, for example, has just been beautified with new wooden structures and fine, white sand. The Larvotto beach has also recently been redeveloped, with the coastline carefully preserved. A walkway lined with fragrant Mediterranean plants, new stores designed to withstand the waves and a new-look beach have all appeared. Next door, a large project is just beginning. The new Mareterra district will extend out into the sea, and will add six hectares to the Principality. It will be home to luxury apartment buildings and villas, a marina, retail outlets, and even a pool. As a destination committed to sustainable development, Monaco has made it a priority to ensure this expansion remains as environmentally-friendly as possible. A protected species of Posidonia seagrass was therefore rehomed before work began, and the submerged structure has been designed to encourage adoption by marine wildlife. Above ground, meanwhile, a one-hectare green park, cycle way, solar panels and charging stations for electric vehicles are all planned for installation. A new space for living life – coming in 2025.
