The Monte-Carlo Casino is the work of an architect who has entered the annals of history, Charles Garnier, to whom we also owe the majestic Paris Opéra, and which, from the outset has been devoted to the Art of Gaming. Frescoes executed in the manner of the painter Boucher, bas-reliefs, sculptures and caryatids, a stunning atrium all in marble and gold. The architecture confers upon the place its solemnity and an unforgettable profoundness of emotions.

Built in 1863, next to the sea, the Monte-Carlo Casino has seen some of the finest moments of Monte-Carlo and endowed gaming with a nobility all its own. The Casino also houses the Monte-Carlo Opera, whose exceptional seasons follow each other in the setting of this fabulous décor.
