Covering an area of around 13,000 m2, Princess Antoinette Park is home to the last living remnants of Monaco’s olive groves, which extended from the sea to the Moyenne Corniche. Almost 200 olive trees, twisted into tortuous shapes and many hundreds of years old, are the main attraction. It is the only garden in the Principality to have adopted, since 2005, a fully organic approach to park maintenance, as well as a policy of improving water management.
