St. Joseph's Church (1626) is part of the Convent of the Servites de Marie.

It is still very well maintained by the archconfraternity of St. Joseph, which is still very active.

This church also differs from others because it belongs to the people of the neighborhood where it is located. St. Joseph is one of the patrons of the town of Bastia, so March 19 is a particularly felt holiday: a procession carries the statue of St. Joseph to the Cathedral of St. Mary.

This representation of Joseph's visit to his wife, the Virgin Mary, is accompanied by the tasting of "panzarotti", delicious little donuts with rice or chickpea flour.
