  • 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 ...

  • The place is beautiful with its palm trees, its town hall and his statue of Napoleon in Roman Emperor but especially every morning I bought pastries bruccio, the chestnut cakes, and herbs of canistrelli, quality meat and cheese of sheep, it is the paradise of Corsican flavors.
