Visits and interpreter guides

During a well-deserved holiday or a professional stay, you have just put down your bags and have only one desire: to discover Bastia and the surrounding villages.

The Bastia tourist office offers a selection of visits and excursions during which you will be able to discover the history, traditions and identity of this territory, which is lovingly attached to its roots and its specificities.


For an immersion in the heart of the Corsican soul, a journey into the city’s past, its legends and local superstitions, let yourself be taken on board by “Les Légendines”, an unusual and anecdotal visit of Bastia skilfully orchestrated by the tourist office. More than a visit, it is a real invitation to the heart of the Corsican soul that is offered to you, every Tuesday from April to October, starting from the Place Saint Nicolas, to discover the unusual places of Bastia through the prism of its legends and traditions. A multitude of stories revealing the secrets of the Corsican spirit, the splendour of its religious traditions, its spells, its places of wonder with an often unknown history, will be revealed to you by a guide. Cultural legacies and reassuring witnesses of preserved traditions, the sacred polyphonic songs will complete this journey into the past of the city.
