THE FORMER PRISON OF THE PORT OF NICE

12.00

A Monument’s Path from Darkness into Light

Category:

The former prison of the port of Nice is the last building of its kind still existing today in France. Its history, which began in 1750, accompanied that of Port Lympia. Down through the centuries, the edifice would encounter an amazing destiny, going through periods of darkness, followed by periods of light. Acquired by the Département des Alpes-Maritimes, the Pavillon de l’Horloge and the ground floor of the former prison are now at the heart of a major cultural redevelopment project. The history of this exceptional monument, and of the prison inside its walls, is recounted throughout the pages of this informative and lavishly illustrated book
