Photographer's Note

A view from the old port of Bastia I presented several times:

La Jetée du Dragon
A panoramic view of the entry
The rescue boat in the harbor
a view from the top of the Citadel

This time, a photo taken on the docks with background, the old Genoese cited "A Bastiglia" which takes its name Bastia. Bastia's history goes back far in time. Ptolemais already talk of a port there.
Later, it became the capital of the island Genoese. The Genoese built first a fort (1353) which became the residence of the Governor, and houses and the Cathedral of Santa Maria (1495). This new district was called "A Terranova (New Town). At its feet, the natural loop of the "old port of Bastia, which formed a hamlet is Porto Cardo. The fishermen had settled in this place has long since Ptolémaïs stue a port already in place.
Just behind the old port, the area inhabited by the Corsicans called "A Terravecchja. The latter is caught between the mountains and Porto Cardo.
