Place Foch, Ajaccio

3.7
Once the site of old Ajaccio's medieval gate, Place Foch is an architectural monument designed in the 18th century. At its center stands the 28 m (92 ft) column erected in 1790 as a tribute to freedom. Placed atop the column during the restoration stands a statue of King Louis XVI, which is why many locals call this monument Place Louis XVI.

  • Indeed, one of the merchants of olives with a very large stand in the center of the market takes advantage of the tourist season to sell olives at very high prices (2,40 euro 100 g or 24 euro per Kilo) which people do not necessarily account! In addition, if you ask 100 g, put you 300 g: we load the mule! Be vigilant!

  • Situated in the heart of Ajaccio from East to West is long. Bordering the coast on the East side and stood there overlooking the town statue of Napoleon surrounded by flower beds and fountains on the Western side. Lined with stalls selling vegetables, fruits, cheeses, wines, such as tents, Ajaccio was the most vibrant, bustling place it is. Foch square lined with restaurants, shops and hotels, such as toward the North and to the South leading to the Citadel and the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte Street, street of this square extends home.
