Fort Antoine Theatre

 

Fort Antoine Theatre (Avenue de la Quarantaine, Monaco) — this is a small amphitheater on the Avenue de la Quarantaine in the Monaco-Ville ward of Monaco. The fort hosts open air plays in the summer months. The theatre was originally constructed as a fortress in the early 18th-century before its destruction in 1944

Prince Rainier III had the fortress rebuilt as a theatre in 1953. The parapet of the fort is provided by pittosporum hedges. The militaristic nature of its architecture has been retained with a bartizan and a pyramid of cannonballs at the center of the theatre.
Free admission. Check the theater’s website for an updated schedule: https://theatrefortantoine.com/
