The Bastia Citadel, built in the fifteenth century, is also known as Terra Nova. Belonging to the Genoese until the eighteenth century, it was gradually surrounded by a maze of houses forming narrow and tortuous alleys that eventually formed a real neighborhood. Surrounded by ramparts, the citadel of Bastia is reached by the Louis XVI gate or the landscaped Romieu garden on pleasant Mediterranean trails.
