Historic Site Tourist Spot
Overlooking the sea, round, white, Citadelle Saint Florent is a stark fortress built in 1440 that strategically protects the rear of Bastia and the rich agricultural area to the sea. You can walk up the Genoese citadel to the old sanctuary where the Treviso people carried preserved relics of Saint-Florent from the 12th century to avoid their pillage by the Saracens. Contemporary art adorns the walls during the summer months to display a connection between the historical and modern perspectives of Corsica.

  • What beautiful little village as Saint Florent. Between its port and shopping and lively alleys, it is so good to stroll. When the Citadel it has a State of disrepair. Which is a shame because the view from the top of the belvedere where she is superb, whether on Saint Florent where the Bay of Cap Corse.

  • Hang out on the port, walking the small streets of this Corsican village is pleasant and relaxing. However the building of the Citadel asks to be restored and rehabilitated at the height of what it was probably another time injury...
