One of the most famous and emotionally evocative photographs of all time is of a young woman placing a flower in the barrel of a gun during an anti-war protest. A similar feeling is evoked at Fort Antoine, one where an establishment of war has been converted into an abode of peace. Originally constructed in early 18th century, original fortifications as early as 1709, as a fort it was destroyed during the Second World War. It was rebuilt by Prince Rainier III in 1953 and over the years it has been transformed into an open air theatre that can seat up to 350 people on its stone seats. Though it was built a mere sixty years ago it retains the style of an early 18th century fort. Admission is open to all except on show days, so feel free to wander in at any time of the day for a spectacular view of the sea and the Monaco port. A picturesque fort converted into an open air theatre with a great view.
