Citadelle Saint Florent, Saint Florent

3.0
#1 of 17 in Things to do in Saint Florent
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.

  • The Citadel of Saint Florent at the bottom of the Cap Corse was closed during our visit. Nonetheless, it is to see because this construction to nearly 600 years and is well preserved. The place is itself unusual. An impression of the end of world. Many old houses which have evolved according to the needs for the population. Walk around and take the time to visit.

  • The Citadel is worth a visit, however the tower is done relatively quickly. Extend his visit with a tour of the harbor.

  • A good place to spend a pleasant couple of hours walking around the narrow streets and looking at the boats
  • The edge of the Citadel are not maintained. The esplanade is a field of dust, weed and dog droppings. This place so well located and where you can enjoy a wonderful view on the Gulf of Saint Florent deserves more attention on the part of the municipality. Both for the integrity of the site and visitors!

  • Friendly village Corsica, with a port where you can see side by side small sailboats and immense gleaming yachts. Confusing 😀

  • Fortified bastion overlooking the Gulf. And can enter the Tower, which often hosts exhibitions
