Citadelle Saint Florent, Saint Florent

#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.

  • I know this citadel since 50 years and if the building is maintained (renovation about 25 years ago) the outskirts are left abandoned. Too bad. The panorama is magnificent. Porto Latino festival takes place every year but in the dust.

  • To get there, the path is very nice through the alleys of the city, but got to the top, apart from a splendid view on the sea, there is not much to see.

  • Great point of view to watch the sunset, place where the Porto Latino damage that cleaning is not completely ensured after the festival, is organized an unpleasant smell reigns at the entry of the place...

  • Lovley place with a big harbour...cafes and resturants.
  • A good place to spend a pleasant couple of hours walking around the narrow streets and looking at the boats
  • Not to be missed

  • Visit minimalist but the town of Saint-florent is a must-see. Good bellade for a day.
