Introduction to Bastia
The name is derived from the Corsica word Bastiglia, meaning fortress, and today the Citadel offers some of the best views of the city.
The magnificent Place St. Nicolas is really the heart of the city, and is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Bastia also has its share of beaches…pebble beaches to the north, sandy beaches to the south, and the superb Mariana beach that borders the ornithological reserve of the Pond of Biguglia - a firm favourite with birdwatchers.
