L’ensemble, restauré depuis peu, donne une impression d’élégance et de gravité. Sa façade maniériste (début XVIIème siècle) est à deux étages, marquée de pilastres sous un fronton à décrochement et un petit clocher. Elle a été inscrite à l’inventaire des Monuments Historiques de France en 1985.

A l’intérieur de l’église, on peut découvrir un pavement de marbre gris provenant de la Restonica, une nef unique qui offre d’intéressants effets de trompe-l’œil. On remarque un beau retable baroque qui surprend par son caractère très expressif. Au-dessus de l’autel, se trouve un grand médaillon en relief représentant la vierge de l’Apocalypse avec à sa droite deux Papes et à sa gauche deux pénitents en cagoule. L’église est dotée d’un orgue à l’italienne (orgue en fer forgé avec un clavier et sans pédalier).

La chapelle Sainte Croix est le point de départ de la célèbre Granitula (procession des pénitents masculins du Jeudi Saint)


Holy Cross Chapel of Corte

The features are drawn, the eyes are circled. But the militants say to hold good.

For seven days now, a small group of students of the Ghjuventù Indipendentista has been on hunger strike, within the walls of the Sainte-Croix chapel in Corte.

Arrived Saturday after the demonstration of Bastia, they are, since, installed comfortably.

Comforters, heating, boxes of water bottles to give an illusion of satiety. And crosswords, to pass the time.

Yesterday, they were five to maintain the movement, after two young girls were sent to the hospital for hypoglycemia. They spent the night there, before coming out yesterday morning.

The high school students who had also joined the movement also left.
