Monaco: Fontvieille

Last Wednesday I got three postcards: one from Monaco, one from Germany and one from Andorra.

The card from Monaco shows Fontvieille. Fontvieille is a ward of Monaco. It is the southernmost part of Monaco and also one of the youngest. From the 1970s onwards it was constructed almost entirely on artificially reclaimed land to combat the chronic land shortage in the extremely densely populated principality. 


Stamps:
Mediterranean Flora and Fauna (from set of ten) (issued 01-01-2002)
Fondation Princesse Charlène de Monaco (from set of two) (issued 10-04-2017)


Thank You very much William!
