The Jardin de Romieu (1874), listed in the Inventory of Historic Monuments, is a small haven of peace in Bastia.
Located on the eastern flank of the city and built in tiers above the sea, it houses very fine specimens of trees and plants, including a magnificent ombù, Judas trees, a pittosporum, and several other varieties.
For the record: the name of the garden comes from a cutlery manufacturer from Langres (in the region of Dijon), son-in-law of a bourgeois from Bastia who donated the staircase grids in 1871.
From the garden you can easily reach the Citadel and the Old Port.
In the summer, many concerts are held in the Jardin Romieu.
