  • ONE of the most beautiful places of the city in front of the port Tino Rossi and at the place Foch Ajaccio Hall houses the identity market of local products. Sunny winter for retirees and shady summer is typically ajaccien here you can still hear the gentle, IMPERIAL capital OF THE CORSICA Ajaccio

  • Place of life, the daily market comes less than in summer, but it remains nonetheless very nice.

  • I don't consider myself one of those squares should not be missed ... There is the local market, the historic monument and nothing else ...
