  • It doesn't help to move on this square, the fountain is pretty but nothing more. Dirty city no unattractive

  • Freedom Square is the central point of Toulon. A beautiful square framed with a careful classical architecture and in the Centre, a monumental fountain with a beautiful statue. There is at you sides a coffee where we take a very good break. Panoramic point of the city and visit.

  • This place of freedom, created in 1858 during the expansion of the city, decided by Napoleon III, on the initiative of the Ministry of war, and giving on the main thoroughfare that runs through Toulon, Strasbourg boulevard. This big place of 117 m long and 120 m wide, is the junction between the upper city, founded in the 19th century, and the lower town, which corresponds to the ancient city. She appeared-the modern Toulon Centre - on this place was built, in 1889, a fountain, by the city of Toulon and the Republican Federation of the Var on the occasion of the centenary of the French Revolution. It was inaugurated by President Carnot, in 1890. The monumental fountain of the Federation brings together three figures, carved in the stone of Calissane, representing France (freedom), strength and Justice. It also symbolizes the transport of the statue of liberty from France to America. The group consists of freedom, standing on a marked pedestal of the RF initials. It is flanked on the left of a male character symbolizing strength, and right of a female figure representing Justice. She are in place on a ship's prow, lined sea horses of springing from the waves. Freedom is helmeted, a sword attached to his belt and proudly raising a torch. She has on the other hand the Declaration of the rights of man and of the citizen. the Municipal Council of August 28, 1945, and its Mayor John Bartolini, deposited a plaque in tribute to the facts of war of 1944.
