Citadelle Saint Florent, Saint Florent

(400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Always good to visit historical sites but was not able to find information about the history. Located at the far end of the town. Not wheelchair friendly.  more »
  • We walked by on our way for diner in the centre. An nice citadel with a very nice view of the surroundings.  more »
  • It's one of the most scenic place in the island. If you have a kick for photography this is your place. You can just spend hours clicking and sitting g just doing nothing.  more »
