Palais de la Préfecture


Palais de la Préfecture review Rate it

With its grand gates and colonnaded façade, this magnificent building looks every bit as regal as its architect had intended when it was first constructed as the 18th-century Palais Royal to accommodate the governors and princes of Savoy. Following Nice's reunification with the rest of France in 1860, the Palais became affiliated to the Préfecture des Alpes-Maritimes. It is now the seat of the region's administrative dignitaries and, as such, is not open to the public.
