The provincial capital is actually the palace of King Manuel I of Sardinia. I did not go in to see it. On the surrounding square, there are chairs for rest, so you can take a rest under the tropical vegetation.
Currently the headquarters of the Prefecture of the French Maritime Alps Department, this heavily-columned neoclassical building was once the Royal Palace of the Dukes of Savoy. The Dukes (Kings of the Italian island of Sardinia), used the palace from 1610 to 1860, 250 years. Much has been remodeled since that time, but the façade and staircase remain mostly unaltered and were designated a historical monument in 1996. The open-air market in front of the palace overflows with flowers and fruits and vegetables. On Mondays, there’s a flea market with lots of antiques.
More ordinary palaces, especially in Europe.
The provincial capital is located in the old town of Nice. Before that, the provincial capital served as the residence of the Duke of Savoy and King Sardin during their stay in Nice. In 1814, King Manuel I of Sadin built it into a palace specification.
The provincial capital is an old palace. The location here is very good. The king at that time took a long time to build this palace.
