It is one of the most beautiful towns of Corsica. But it requires without a doubt much care and much imagination that other places of the island which are sufficient unto themselves. Italian city by its origins, it kept from it the choir and the Citadel.
Between the old quarter of Terra Vecchia, founded in 1380, and the Terra Nova one, which was begun one century later, the Genoese Domination sets, nevertheless, Bastia has sometimes napolitan accents with its cracked houses, its balconies of wroughtiron and its façades where garland of multicoloured linen cheerfully flap.
We can visit Bastia as a tourist : the Saint-Nicolas Square on which we saunter before sitting at the terrace of a café, the Romieu Garden by which we reach the Citadel, the Ethnographic Museum and the museum of the Sea, the churches and the chapels with their generous setting. Bastia has several religious sights, with a chiselled silver Assumption which is due to an artist from Siena of the 17th century, and the Black Christ of the Sainte-Croix Church, which was found floating on the waters between four wonderful lights.
But the beauty of Bastia, mysterious town for the one who does not leave in it, is not in the marbles and golds of its churches. It is in the houses with closed shutters but with half-opened jalousies. You have to bother to try to walk and to get lost in the alleys, to discover it.
[...]A music wanders between the houses, sweet as a summer evening when music is long to stop in the horizon. Then Bastia shakes off its modernism and finds again its greatness of the past, when the patrician families lived in the honourable wealth that provided them the cosmopolitan trade.
[...]The music streches out in the steep-sided alleys and invades the city.
[...]From the Saint-Nicolas square which faces the sea, alleys with the mediterranean colors and scents go up.
Visit Cap Corse
Found to the north of Bastia and Saint-Florent, Cap Corse (Corsica) is a 40 kilometre long and 10 km wide promontory, with several attractive fishing villages, much attractive coastline, a couple of good beaches and a ridge of mountains down the middle. Mont Stello, in the centre of the promontory, is the highest peak at 1307 metres.
The usual way to visit Cap Corse (Corsica) is simply to follow around the coast - up one side and down the other, with occasional excursions a little way inland to visit the wine-producing villages in the hills. This provides the best way to enjoy the coast, beaches and small villages, and repeated crossing from side to side is not possible because of the mountains.
