Cultural heritage

Our fully authentic destination reveals you the wealth of cultural and religious heritage of Corsica.

Often conquered, never defeated

Corsica possesses a rich cultural heritage that all of us should respect and preserve.

Several prehistoric sites are evidences of human presence in Corsica since thousands of years before Christ. Because of various invasions taking place in Corsica (Genoese, Greek and Roman), the architectural heritage is varied, even if the Genoese style prevails. The presence of the famous Genoese towers, bridges and citadels are proof of that.

During a walk, you will always be pleasantly surprised to discover remains of the past, more or less close to our era… You will be able to plunge back into the older times with your imagination.

Religious heritage

Because religion is really important in Corsica, you can find a lot of churches, chapels, convents and cathedrals on the island. Some architectural constructions will surprise you by their beauty, their greatness, and their originality. All of them tell a story…

Those different places of worship, made with various styles (Pisan, Genoese, Roman), are worth the visit.

If you are passionate by the Roman architecture, the website Corse Romane (www.corse-romane.eu) is for you as it makes a list of all the Roman buildings in Corsica (only in French). 

Fervour, faith and devotion during the Holy Week in Corsica

In Corsica, the Holy Week leads to many popular ceremonies, where people follow with piety and devotion. Traditions are passed down from generation to generation, through centuries. Nowadays, many Corsicans tend to maintain those authentic and singular traditions.

During the Holy Week, rites, Services, and processional corteges are organised by the various Corsican friaries. Paschal ceremonies are very symbolic: they demonstrate the persistence of a truly familial devotion, and reveal a deep respect of ancestral and traditional values.
