Port De Fontvieille

In contrast to the other city districts Monaco-Ville, Monte Carlo and La Condamine, Fontvieille was constructed almost entirely on artificially reclaimed land and thus represents one of the younger parts of the principality. In 1981, the then Crown Prince Albert (since April 6, 2005 Albert II, Prince of Monaco) laid the cornerstone for the new city quarter. The existence of Fontvieille, and its many public works projects, relates substantially to former Prince of Monaco, Prince Rainier III's reputation as the Builder Prince.
