The Ruins of the Orezza Convent

Learn more The Ruins of the Orezza Convent

Situated on the heights of the village of Piedicroce stands the ruins of the former Franciscan convent of Orezza: shut down during the French revolution, it was destroyed in 1943 by the Germans so they could store ammunitions.

It played an important role in the history of Corsica: indeed, this convent is the place where they voted the independence of Corsica and the need to establish a Constitution in January 1735.
