Citadelle Saint Florent, Saint Florent

3.0
#2 of 9 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.

    Is the historical area of Saint Florent where you can enjoy a great view of the Gulf, shame about the neglect and dirt.

    Nice place overlooking the Bay of St Florent. Zucchero concert that night, within the Citadel. Great memory!
