Calvi citadel

Perched atop a rocky headland, Calvi’s imposing Citadel oversees the bustling little town.

The massive citadel was fortified by Corsica’s Genoese rulers from the 12th century onwards.

While there is little in the way of businesses within it’s walls, it is still worth while exploring the alleyways and nooks and crannies.

Especially as there’s some amazing paper paste ups to be found!

There are stunning views to be had from the ramparts, both over the town and out to the sea.

The citadel also houses a former military hospital as well as containing the remains of a house that is rumoured to be the place where Christopher Columbus was born.
