Situated at the foot of the lofty Serra di Pigno, the Prefecture of the Haute-Corse is also the island's main point of entry. The old town with its lauze-stone rooftops extends around the old port, overlooked by the citadel or upper town known as Terra-Nova. To the north, Terra-Vecchia lies around the huge Place St-Nicolas from where you can watch the comings and goings of the ships in the harbour. Despite its development, Bastia remains a city of contrasts with an exuberant yet intimate character.
