It is a natural bay and the only deep-water port in the town. Studies in the area lead to the building of an immense structure 352 meters in length and weighing 160,000 tonnes of a sea wall and a lee breakwater. It serves as a safe haven for super-yachts. It is at the foot of the Rock of Gibraltar. Raised semi-floating, it keeps the marine fauna and flora safe. Circuit de Monaco runs around the port, where the famous Grand Prix takes place.
The cathedral is also known as the Cathedral of Our Lady Immaculate. Sometimes it is called Saint Nicholas Cathedral. A historic church of the Roman Catholic faith, it is also home to a grand four-keyboard organ. It is where Princess Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III had their church wedding ceremony in April 1956.
