My

Quiet

Travel Theme.

One of our stops when in Monaco was a visit to

CathédraleNotre-Dame-Immaculée

(Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception),

saint-nicholas-cathedral_monaco_0213

also known as Saint Nicholas Cathedral

(name of the old church, demolished in 1874),

In Saint Nicholas’ Cathedral we were shown

Princess Grace (Kelly), and…

Prince Rainier’s graves.

As most of us were of that age where we knew of and like/adored

Grace Kelly the actress, we spent a few quiet moments

remembering and photographing so that

we would remember this visit.

On Saturday night or early Sunday morning I received a query from

Julz…….artist, blogger, photographer, graphic designer

regarding the location of  this photo…

geometrical_0260

which I posted in my Geometrical post a week or two ago.

monaco_0258Thanks to Google I was able to locate a photo

which included this statue…

monaco_0258a

dedicated to Prince Albert’s 25th anniversary,

but also the cannon balls in the first photo

only a few metres in front of it.

Why I did not take at least

one contextual photo, I don’t know.

There were plenty of cannons situated…

around the Royal Palace of Monaco.

Set high above the city…

monaco_0238

it provided some striking views…

 monaco_0237

including this one…the three country view.

In the foreground is Monaco, naturally,

the middle ground is France

and waaaaay in the background is Italy.

Three countries at once…not something an Aussie sees every day.

Now all we had to do was walk back

down a long hill, to our coach. 🙂
