On the edge of the old town, this pretty square was created at the end of the 18th Century under the supervision of Antoine Spinelli, who also designed one of the square's most beautiful buildings, the Chapelle du Saint-Sépulcre. In the center of this square stands the statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi, Hero of the Two Worlds, built in 1891 by Etex and Gustave Deloye. On the square, you can enjoy a drink or two, or sample the excellent seafood dishes of the famous Grand Café de Turin. It's also not far from the harbor of Vieux-Nice, the Colline du Château hill, the municipal theater and the Modern Art Museum.
