 CALVI
 
 
Locality:
Calvi
Position:
DESCRIPTION:
Firstly, at Calvi, the vast bay and 5 km beach, the line of mountains covered with snow until May, the walls of the citadel that go out into the sea - you could not dream of a more picturesque location. Tour round the ramparts of this proud city, about which the saying “Semper Fidelis” echoes its turbulent history.
From here, walk down towards the port and marina, which is one of the most popular in Corsica.
TO SEE
At Calvi, the Genoese citadel, visit the pretty Baroque church of Saint John the Baptist that contains the “Christ des Miracles” which, it is said, led to the end of the siege of the town by the Turks in 1553.
Also take time to look behind the pink door to the church of Sainte-Marie-Majeure and that of the Oratory of the Brotherhood of Saint Antoine.
Why not visit the Revellata peninsula with its remarkable seabed and head up to Notre Dame de la Serra to enjoy its commanding views over the bay.
TO TASTE
Olive oil and in particular “niellaghja” olive oil that is a local speciality; “oliosi” which are biscuits made with Lama olive oil and the Sant’Antonino “croquants”, small crunchy almond biscuits.
