Another important residential area in Monaco is Fontvieille, which lies on the Port of Fontvieille, at the border of France. Fontvieille is the youngest district in Monaco, and was built in the 1970s under the careful eye of Prince Rainier III. The most spectacular part of the district is Fontvieille Port, a yacht harbour perfectly protected from wind and waves. Towards the west it borders the French town of Cap-d’Ail.
