The Citadel

The Ajaccio citadel opens to the public

The summer of 2021 marked the time of discovery for the public. Two years after its acquisition by the city of Ajaccio, the citadel opened its doors to the public for the first time in 5 centuries.
Throughout the summer, the citadel told its story through multiple testimonies and artistic views.

A new "piece" of the city!

Creators and visitors are thus in the same space. The site remains open to show the place in its development. The aim is to help people understand the site and the project, to discover it through workshops and guided tours...
Ajaccians and visitors are expected to make this new place of life their own...
