Its star attractions are the Chapelle de l’Immaculée Conception, which has a striking painted ceiling, and the Chapelle St Roch, which houses an 18th century organ. The area surrounding the Citadelle, Terra Nova is another of the city’s ancient areas where historic buildings, such as the Cathédrale Ste-Marie, are situated.
Be sure to see the Église St-Jean Baptiste too, located in the glamorous Vieux Port area, where extravagant yachts are docked. For retail therapy, head to the two main shopping streets - boulevard Paoli and rue César-Campinchi - which run parallel to the central Place St Nicolas.
