Musée de Bastia
In addition to its temporary exhibitions, the Musée de Bastia showcases the history of the town from a variety of angles (political, economic, cultural, social etc). Don't miss the giant model of the town, the richly decorated sailors' chests, serving as a reminder that Bastia has a long-standing vocation as a port, or the Baroque paintings. Two impressive vaulted underground tanks meant the citadel was self-sufficient for water in the event of a siege.
