Moneghetti is a north central residential district and tourist area; part of the traditional Quartier of La Condamine in the Principality of Monaco.[1] However, some observe Moneghetti as an effective fifth Quartier of the Monaco, having a very distinct atmosphere and topography when compared with low-lying La Condamine.[2] It is also one of the ten modern administrative Wards of Monaco.[1]

Geography[edit]

Moneghetti lies on the north center side of the country, just north of La Condamine.[3] Moneghetti is generally considered part of La Condamine, even though it is its own administrative Ward.[3] It runs directly along the neighboring French town of Beausoleil, as well as the Monégasque Wards of, La Colle, La Condamine, Les Révoires, and Saint Michel.[4][1]

Demographics[edit]

Moneghetti is the fourth smallest ward in Monaco in terms of population, and the second smallest in terms of land size. Saint Michel has a Population of 3,003 and is 0.10 km².[5]

Monaco has ten state-operated schools,[6] four private schools, and one university. Two state schools, and the university's only regional office are located in Moneghetti.[7]

Tourism[edit]

Moneghetti has a large role on tourism in the Principality, with almost 50 hotels and bed & breakfasts, located here,[8] however, many of the hotels have only 15 to 20 room accommodations.[9]

Features[edit]

Situated in an area where the Alps drop directly down to the Mediterranean Sea; Moneghetti is noted for its steep inclines.[10] Its parish church, the church of the Sacred Heart, contains the headquarters of the Association des Guides et Scouts de Monaco. Monaco's only railway station Monaco-Monte Carlo is located on the Moneghetti-Beausoleil border. The Compagnie des Carabiniers du Prince operate their chief barracks in central Moneghetti.[11]
