Citadella, Saint Florent

#5 of 26 in Things to do in Saint Florent
Historic Site · Tourist Spot
Overlooking the sea, round, white, Citadella 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. Put Citadella and other Saint Florent attractions into our Saint Florent trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Somewhat scrappy around the edges due to rubbish and cars everywhere. Nothing special and doesn’t reflect the cute town area and marina. Views are OK though.  more »
  • Nothing special. Recommend Calvi or Bastia instead. But easy access as it is not at the top of lots of steps!  more »
