Citadelle Saint Florent, Saint Florent
(2/5 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.

  • Saint Florent is a quaint village, offering views very interesting. The Citadel is located at its Summit. The construction is not particularly interesting, among other immersed in complete neglect. However the panorama all around is really magnificent.

  • Reach both on foot and by car, ample parking and access from two streets: a one-way from the town center of Saint Florent and the other from the road leading into the village near the post office.

  • For 25 years, no change... The site is beautiful, overlooking the golf course of Saint Florent, but it's really sad to see that nothing is done to give this site the Majesty of yesteryear. Outside of the small chapel, and lighting, the whole site is left "abandoned" graffiti etched into the plaster covering the entirety of the main building. When an effort in the region and the commune to revive the whole Citadel?
