Ancient Genoese fortified town constructed in the 13th century in the south of Corsica, the citadel of Calvi is made up of a series of walls crisscrossed by narrow streets perched on the top of a chalky headland. Inside this very ancient citadel (also known as 'Ville-Haute') are several public and religious edifices: the former palace of the governor, the primatial church, the law court, the town hall and the college. At the entrance to the citadel visitors can read an inscription engraved by the Genoese: Civitas Calvi semper fidelis ('The city of Calvi, forever faithful').
