The Terra Nova or citadel quarter has a distinctly prosperous air and is largely the preserve of Bastia’s affluent set. An intriguing and quaint labyrinth of narrow lanes weaves amongst the buildings between these two districts. And in 1978, the association founded E Voce di U Commune (the voices of the community) to preserve the cultural patrimony of Corsica, especially its rich music tradition. Pigna’s success inspired neighboring villages, and for about the last 12 years, young artisans have been encouraged to live and work in Strada villages in exchange for government grants.
Bastia is the nearest large town and ferry port. Saleccia is perhaps the Corsica’s best beach, large, little visited, with perfect soft sand, clear azure water and a natural backdrop. These, along with the region’s two honeypot towns, L’ele Rousse and Calvi, get swamped in summer, but the scenery more than compensates. In any case, Calvi, with its cream-coloured citadelle, breathtaking white-sand bay and mountainous backdrop, should not be missed. To reach the Ile de la Pietra, the islet that gives the town its name, continue north, passing the station on your left. Once over the causeway connecting the islet to the mainland, you can walk through the crumbling mass of red granite as far as the lighthouse at the far end, from where the view of the town is spectacular, especially at sundown, when you get the full effect of the red glow of the rocks.
