Roman Catholic Church, Cargese

4.8
#5 of 19 in Historic Sites in Corse-du-Sud
See some of the architecture remaining from the Greek colonies on Corsica at Roman Catholic Church. From the outside, the church seems very modest with its plain colors; once inside, however, you'll likely be taken aback by the artwork you see. Vibrant frescos jump out as you enter, art pieces for different saints sit at the front, and chandeliers hang from the ceiling. The church grounds offer a good view down into town and over the water.

  • A Greek cult place to visit for its originality. A lot of woodwork that changes us from our churches. We have never had the opportunity to visit a Greek Church before. It was a good surprise.

  • Light, nice colours and drawings. Great view on the bay of Sagone. Worth the walk and a short visit.  more »

  • It is beautiful this church! At the northern end of the Gulf of Sagone, on a granite promontory, the village of Cargèse dominates a beautiful Bay since the end of the 18th century. This is one of the most recent human imports of Corsica. In reality, the site was occupied 1siecle earlier by Greek exiles who fled the Turks and which were authorised by the Republic of Genoa to settle here. But the Greeks quickly aroused the jealousy and hostility of the Corsicans because they prosperaient and especially they were allied with the Genoese enemy. Their homes were burned and the Greeks fled to Ajaccio. He will take Corsica becomes French so that the Greeks return based Cargèse.
