Citadel and Corsican culture seduced me

Bastia, to the north of Corsica, is an amazing city. Full of charm, Bastia is a city with soul. The city is popular, as its inhabitants are mostly sailors and traders. The Citadel, is in the oldest district of the city. It can be found in 17th century homes, and old palaces which were sometimes feuding families. It is worth a stroll through the streets that cross the citadel. For the locals, it is the best way to discover the city. Around every street opens a great panorama of the coast and the port. Or you get to a charming little square, or a church .The Citadel is where they guard the riches, mixture of historical, popular life and Corsican culture.

Bastia Citadel

Most of the cities in Corsica facing the sea, has a citadel that was once used to protect the local inhabitants from invaders. The citadel of Bastia is located next to the port. In order to access it you first have to walk through the lovely garden of Romieu, then up some steps that give access to a tunnel. Through the tunnel you cross the defensive walls and finally reach the heart of the citadel, which is a beautiful cobbled square. The main building of the square is the Governor's Palace, which has been closed to the public for years. The fort was established in 1530 and is very well preserved.
