Saint-Florent


Le Port de Saint-Florent
[Ph. Desjobert ]

At the foot of the Cap Corse

The Sailing Harbor of Saint-Florent is nestling at the foot of the Cap Corse, at the end of a Gulf which wear its name, lined-up at the west by the Desert of the Agriates, at Bastia level, the Capital of the North.


An Evocation of Saint-Florent ...

In 1440, the Genoeses built on this site a citadel which remained, until the 18th century the siege of the bishop of the Nebbio and the governor palace. Despite the ravages caused by the malaria, this place was hotly contested at the 16th century by the French, the Genoeses, and of course, by the Corsican.

The town finds a new expansion again, after Napoleon III had ordered the draining of the marshes, attacking then to the sources of the paludism. Extract of Terres de Corse Gabriel-Xavier Culioli
