Palais de la Prefecture

4.2/5
10 Reviews
Historical Architecture
Recommended Sightseeing Time: 1-2 hours
Address: 1 Place du Palais de Justice, 06300 Nice, France

What people are saying:

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.

    This is actually part of "Cours Salaya", so same comments apply

    i.e. they've ruined it. Used to be a place where you could buy cheap, local produce on a Sunday morning, including flowers for your loved ones. Now all the farmers have been chased-out by merchants ...
