The Tourist Attractions of Moneghetti:
Moneghetti is an attractive part of Monaco, characterised by steep roads and buildings set into hillsides, as this is where the Alps drops down into the Mediterranean. Walking around Moneghetti you’ll be rewarded with some great views over the rest of Monaco, and you’ll get fit doing so, going up and down the hills!
Moneghetti itself doesn’t have much in the way of tourist attractions, even though it covers a sizable area. At the heart of the quarter is a small square, surrounded by buildings, and with streets heading off in most directions. The square is home to the Moneghetti Post Office and Police Station and has a small public garden. The main landmark for Moneghetti, the Sacred Heart Church, is just a short distance from this square.
Historically, Moneghetti was part of the traditional quartier of La Condamine were you will find some of Monaco’s tourist attractions. La Condamine is the second oldest district of Monaco, and is home to the large Port of Monaco, otherwise known as Port Hercule. Tourists enjoy wandering around the port, admiring all the luxurious and very expensive yachts that are usually moored here, including the one belonging to the Prince of Monaco, which is often here.
La Condamine is one of the top business districts of Monaco and it’s home to many stores and boutiques, especially Princess Caroline Mall, and there’s also La Condamine Market.
Moneghetti also neighbours the ward of Les Revoires. Les Revoires is also very hilly and its main tourist attraction is the Exotic Garden of Monaco (Jardin Exotique de Monaco). This beautiful botanical garden has been an attraction of Monaco since opening in 1933 and its flowers, as well as its clifftop location make this popular. The gardens are well known for their cactuses, which grow very well in the Mediterranean climate, and there are many fat plants, like Aloe here too. The gardens are also home to a large underground cave that has a number of caverns with stalagmites and stalactites to see.
Because Monaco is so small, you can stay in Moneghetti and easily visit the rest of Monaco, not just the neighbouring wards.
