Citadelle Saint Florent, Saint Florent

(2.1/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • very beautiful monument with a splendid view over the old town of st florent and its port; view on the Cape corse

  • The place is worth especially for his point of view but the monument itself has no real interest. Quiet place.

  • Beautiful Citadel, I recommend the Porto Latino festival in this lovely setting. Fans of good music, this is an appointment not to be missed.
