History of Monte Carlo Complex

In the very first few years of existence, the casino was moved a number of times. In the 1850s this place wasn’t prepared for a resort and many people thought it wouldn’t succeed. There were no roads to connect Monaco to the rest of Europe, no accommodation and therefore lack of customers. The first owners of the resort weren’t competent enough to run a casino and couldn’t make a good profit of it nor attract customers.

In 1863, François Blanc took over the casino and formed a company to manage the new business. Blanc attracted investors, he being the only majority stockholder. At that time the Monte Carlo Casino Hotel And Resort was situated in Les Spelugues, meaning “the caves”. The area’s name was changed to Monte Carlo on Blanc’s insistence to sound more attractive.

In 1878, the resort was further expanded. In 1880, the same thing happened. New buildings and features were added. The place was refurbished and redesigned. In 1921 the Casino Gardens welcomed the first Women’s Olympiad.

An interesting fact is that Monaco citizens are forbidden to enter the casino. The casino is said to be intended for foreigners only. To make this happen, guests are asked for their identity documents to verify that they are not natives.

The Monaco Grand Prix takes place in the area of the Monte Carlo Hotel And Resort, namely near the La Rascasse.
