    The imperial, is one of the last palaces built in Menton. It is considered to be the most modern of all palaces thanks to its equipment including lifts, fireplaces and bathrooms with bathtub on all floors and of course, the telephone.
    Built in 1913, three years after the arrival of the railway on the French Riviera, it testifies to the upheaval of the economy of the city of Menton which from this period becomes the flagship destination of the world aristocracy.
    The hotel, with its modern equipment, was designed by Georges Hans Tersling.
    In the basement of the building, the remains of the huge boiler also testify to the modernity of the palace. A true place of distraction for the aristocracy, it hosted classical music concerts at the time. But with the beginning of the First World War, the hotel changed its function. It then became a military hospital.
    Marie-Curie, the first woman to win the Nobel Prize in Physics, also passed through the walls of this hotel, which has now been transformed into an apartment building.
