Tourism Porto Vecchio: the must-sees

The Genoese-style Citadel, which reminds us that Porto-Vecchio was once fortified, will fascinate you, as will the district in which it is located. With its picturesque alleys lined with old houses, its sidewalk cafés and its square which includes the magnificent Saint-Jean-Baptiste church and the most famous tree, “Bel Ombra”. It is pleasantly traversed on foot. To appreciate the long beaches of Porto-Vecchio, you have to head south or north of the city. The beach of Palombaggia with its gulf of Santa Manza and its bay of Rondinara constitutes a seaside resort which is ideal for idleness or for practicing water sports such as jet-skiing or boat rental. To the north, the natural landscapes made up of gulfs and beaches are also worth the detour, especially to admire the bay of Saint-Cyprien and the peninsula of Pinarello.
