Historic Quarter sights in Corsica
- Sort by:
A network of narrow lanes leads south towards the old port and the neighbourhood of Terra Vecchia, a muddle of crumbling apartments and balconied blocks. The shady place de l'Hôtel de Ville hosts Bastia's lively morning market from Tuesday to Saturday. One block to the west, don't miss the baroque Chapelle de l'Immaculée Conception, with its elaborately painted barrel-vaulted ceiling; it briefly served as the seat of the short-lived Anglo-Corsican parliament in 1795. Further north isChapelle St-Roch, known for its 18th-century organ and trompe l'œil roof.
