Quartier de la Ponche
Quartier de la Ponche Review
This old town maze of backstreets and ramparts is daubed in shades of gold, pink, ocher, and sky-blue. Trellised jasmine and wrought-iron birdcages hang from the shuttered windows, and many of the tiny streets dead-end at the sea. Here you can find the Port des Pécheurs (Fishermen's Port), on whose beach Bardot did a star-turn in And God Created Woman. Twisting, narrow streets, designed to break the impact of the mistral, open to tiny squares with fountains. The main drag here, Rue de la Ponche, leads into Place l'Hôtel de Ville, landmarked by a mairie (town hall) marked out in typical Tropezienne hues of pink and green.
