While in Jardin Exotic I saw this beautiful view of the Monaco-Ville. You can see the walls of the castle, the cathedral and at left the building of the museum and aquarium. This mountain was a natural fort protecting the original port and giving a chance to Grimaldi family to rule the area for so many centuries.
Quando estava no Jardim Exótico podia ver esta paisagem da rocha de Monaco. Vocês podem ver as muralhas do castelo, a catedral e à esquerda o grande edifício do museu-aquário. Esta rocha serviu de defesa natural para proteger o velho porto, algo que permitiu aos Grimaldi reinar aqui durante tantos séculos.

That's an original view of Monaco.
A spectacular sight of the town high on the rock protected by huge defensive walls.
A nice alternation of white and red of the town in contrast with the darker vegetation and with the blue Mediterranean.
From your POV the town also looks built very compact on a small area.
Best regards, Paul

A breathtaking view presented with good light management and reasonable clarity. A photo that makes me want to experience it for myself.

Linda vista do castelo e de todas as contruções em volta com o mar de fundo, deu um contraste muito bonito! A iluminação também está muito boa! Excelente composição! Belo trabalho!

What an excellent POV - you have managed to capture the fortress walls as well as well as a lot of the surrounding houses & harbour.
I have often thought about visiting Monaco - another destination on my bucket list... need to live ten more lifetimes to do everything I want to do... sad!!!
