The ties that unite Dolceacqua and the Grimaldi family date back to the Renaissance. In the parish church of Dolceacqua, you can admire the altarpiece of Saint Dévote, made by Louis Bréa, commissioned by Françoise Grimaldi, in her will, in 1515. In recent years, relations between Monaco and Dolceacqua have intensified through actions such as the inauguration of a room Doria-Grimaldi in the Doria Castle in Dolceacqua or the title of "Honorary Citizen" conferred on H.S.H. the Prince Albert II. The twinning between the two municipalities, which will be celebrated on November 3, 2023, aims to strengthen this bond of solidarity. An anniversary date since it was on November 3, 1523, in Monaco, that the trustees of Dolceacqua, Apricale, Isolabona and Perinaldo were sworn in in the presence of Augustin Grimaldi, Bishop of Grasse and Lord of Monaco.
