This is certainly one of the more inspiring churches in Corsica. The facade with the beautiful Rosetta window is very nice, However the alter is very unique one that I've not seen in other churches. The soft church music that was played gave a very pleasant atmosphere

When in Bonifaccio, do not skip this church! The altar area is made of marble in the lightest, prettiest colors! Wonderful!

Main church of the haute ville and right in the middle. A pleasant loggia on the west front and the tower is a good landmark. Unexceptional interior but worth a look. Nice altarpiece.

Nicely restored, pretty church. We enjoyed listening to the music and the peace from the hubbub of the town. if you are passing go in.

Nice paintings in this old small church. It offers a free entry but there is not much in there except nice roof paintings. You can buy candles to light for 2€ each.

Set into the Citadel this is a 15th Century church that is so peaceful and a cool have in the summer months. Completely free to enter but making a small donation to light a candle helps with the upkeep!!
