Corsica Travel Guide

San Martino di Lota

Just 20 minutes from downtown Bastia, the turnoff to the perched village of San Martino di Lota winds through thick vegetation as the flat blue expanse of the Tyrrhenian Sea spreads out below. An architectural highlight is the 17th-century parish church dedicated to Saint Martin. Look inside the sanctuary to find the altar piece crafted by Capuchin monks of the Mola monastery. A hike up
