Citadelle Saint Florent, Saint Florent

(360+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.

  • Newer than other cities in the North of Corsica, but large enough and easy to visit, there are pubs and places to spend great evenings with friends.
