La citadelle de Bastia

Credits

Bâtie sur un promontoire rocheux surplombant le Vieux-port, la Citadelle de Bastia est à la fois un quartier pittoresque et le lieu d’implantation historique de la ville. Fondée en 1380 par le gouverneur génois Leonello Lomellini, ce fortin médiéval est un haut-lieu touristique qui se distingue par son caractère « hors du temps ».
Dans ses ruelles pavées au charme méditerranéen veillent de sublimes monuments historiques à l’instar du palais des gouverneurs, de l’oratoire sainte-Croix ou de la cathédrale sainte-Marie.

Derrière la porte monumentale de Louis XVi qui ouvre sur la place du donjon et ces lieux chargés d’histoires, se découvrent des immeubles majestueux qui ont jadis abrité les familles bourgeoises de la ville. C’est dans cette ambiance de village, empreinte de sérénité avec un point de vue superbe sur l’archipel toscan, que la Citadelle promet bien des promenades romantiques.


The citadel of Bastia

Built on a rocky promontory overlooking the Old Port, the Citadel of Bastia is both a picturesque district and the historical site of the city. Founded in 1380 by the Genoese governor Leonello Lomellini, this medieval fortress is a tourist attraction that stands out for its "timeless" character.
In its cobbled streets with a Mediterranean charm, you can find beautiful historical monuments such as the Governors' Palace, the Oratory of the Holy Cross and the Cathedral of St. Mary.

Behind the monumental door of Louis XVi which opens on the place of the keep and these places full of history, discover majestic buildings which formerly sheltered the bourgeois families of the city. It is in this village atmosphere, full of serenity with a superb view of the Tuscan archipelago, that the Citadel promises many romantic walks.
