Photographer's Note

My unusual shot in Monte-Carlo.
This is a mirrored drive of water fountain, which reflects the old building of the Casino.

Designed by Charles Garnier, the legendary architect who also built the majestic Paris Opera, the Monte-Carlo Casino was dedicated from the outset to the art of gaming. With its frescoes in the style of Boucher, its bas-reliefs, sculptures and caryatids, and an astonishing gold and marble atrium, the architecture exerts an unforgettable emotional impact.

The Casino of Monaco - Monte Carlo Built in 1863 in the Principality of Monaco, overlooking the Mediterranean, this architectural masterpiece has been the scene of Monte-Carlo's finest hours, spawned prestigious resorts and provided gaming with its most elegant setting. The Casino is also home to the Monte-Carlo Opera, which stages world-renowned productions.
