What to see near the port of Ajaccio

Ajaccio is a city that can be easily explored on foot: the monuments and the most important places in the Corsican capital, in fact, are all concentrated in the same area, namely in the historic center

The tour can only start from the most important church building in the city, namely the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta , seat of the dioceseIt was in this church, in 1771, that the future emperor of France Napoleon Bonaparte, to whom Ajaccio was the birthplace, was baptized.

To testify the event is an inscription in Latin, present on the baptismal font, which reads: "Here the great Emperor was baptized "In the chapel of Our Lady of Mercy there is the statue of the Madonnucciapatron saint of Ajaccio, celebrated on March 18 each year. 

Not far from the Cathedral there is another monument linked to the French general. We refer to the house where he lived until he was nine years old: the Maison BonaparteThe palace - transformed into a museum in 1967 - can be visited.

The beating heart of Ajaccio is the famous place Foch, in the center of which stands a statue of Napoleon and four lions (Fontaine des quatre lions). However, the latter is not the only thing that characterizes the square. In fact, the town hall overlooks it, where the Napoleonic Museum is also located If that weren't enough, the Petit Train leaves from Place Foch , leading tourists to discover the city. Last but not least, a characteristic market of Corsican products is organized in the square 

Another place that absolutely deserves to be visited during your stay in Ajaccio is the Fesch museum, second only to the Louvre in Paris and one of the most important in the Old ContinentThe palace is named after Cardinal Joseph Fesch, Napoleon's uncle, and is a very precious treasure chest: inside, in fact, masterpieces of Italian art ranging from the '300 to the' 700 are keptInside the museum center you will also find the Chapelle Impériale, where some members of the Bonaparte family rest.

Finally, it is necessary to mention the commemorative monument of Napoleon, which is located in a more secluded position than the historic center. It consists of a bronze statue of the general placed on a block of graniteAt the base of the monument are listed all the victorious exploits of Napoleon.
