Commune Libre du Safranier (Free Commune of Safranier)
Commune Libre du Safranier (Free Commune of Safranier) Review
A few blocks south of the Château Grimaldi is the Commune Libre du Safranier, a magical little neighborhood with a character (and mayor) all its own. Here, not far off the seaside promenade and focused around the Place du Safranier, tiny houses hang heavy with flowers and vines, and neighbors carry on conversations from window to window across the stone-stepped Rue du Bas-Castelet. It's said that Place du Safranier was once a tiny fishing port; now it's the scene of festivals.
