The Story of the Port Hercule

This natural bay located down the Rocher has always been the mooring for the military and shipping boats to the Principality. The Port gets its name from the Greeks legends according to which Hercule came in Monaco during his famous labours. At the begining of the 20th century, two piers were built in order to protect the boats from the wind from East. In 2001, the Port finally got his current look: a new 350 meter long seawall came by the Mediterranean. This half floatting construction is respectful of the marine life, and can also welcome big private yachts and cruise ships. Nowadays, new projects are coming in this area. One of them will include the renovation of the quays, the creation of a public parking space,... The Car Collection of HSH the Prince of Monaco will also be there:
