Citadel of Calvi, Corsica Overview

An aweinspiring Symbolization the city of Calvi built during the Genoese occupation.

The massive fortified Citadel of Calvi has a lot to offer with a brilliant view from its bastions. After passing the monumental doorway between the two 16th century bastions, one can see the ancient Palace of the Genoese Governors, built in 1492 which now serves as a barrack for French army. Opposite to it , you can find Chez Tao, a cabaret built in 1935 and now known for its nightlife. Inside the citadel, one can find the church of the city's guardian angel St. Jean-Baptiste and the Tour de Sel, a watch tower constructed in 1897. The view of Citadel's ramparts is absolutely magnificent, making it one of the top historic destinations in Corsica.
