What specific architectural features does your building have ?
Beyond its structure, the Convent SanFrancescu d'Oletta mainly bares the marks of the Italian influences which established two important religious families in Corsica. First were the Romanesque churches at the beginning of the second millennium, SanFrancescu is an example of the stunning Baroque architecture that followed in the 17th and 18th centuries. Today, the convent is still attached to its church and offers some thirty cells that have been transformed into living spaces over three floors.
Places you would personally recommend
On the way out of Oletta, the Teghine pass to Nonza leads to a breath-taking view of the gulf of St.Florent and the famous vineyards of Patrimonio that are nestled between the sea and the mountains in Conca d’Oro. Also within this stunning landscape is the village which can be accessed via a small path from the convent. The café on the Piazetta has an unrivalled view of the area. A family menu and some delicious homemade tarts are available at “A Forge”, whilst the bar with a view of the Sant’Adria Church and its ex-votos at “Chex Mathieu” is a must-see in Oletta. The Marché aux Puces de Bastia that takes place every Sunday is a good starting point for exploring the capital of Bagnaja just twenty-five minutes away.
