According to Monaco-Matin, Monaco bought the fort that sits at the very top of the Tête de Chien rock outcrop that overlooks the Principality with commanding views. The price tag was a reported €13 million and the seller was Orange.
The transaction took place on July 20 and was announced by Jean-Jacques Raffaele, mayor of neighbouring La Turbie. He added that the three-hectare site has been ceded to Monaco. Employees of Orange are still carrying out work at the fort. (Source: Monaco-Matin)
