Photographer's Note

Saint Florent is an ancient Roman city, it would be the ancient Cersunum. This was the first city was prosperous during the Middle Ages. It was destroyed by the Saracens in the 13th sc, the cathedral is the only witness of the era. The Genoese built a fortress in the 16th sc. City disputed by the Genoese, the Aragonese, and the French for several hundred years, she rallied for independence in 1751. She underwent another assault against the French Corsican Paoli in 1794, after the meeting in France.
Saint Florent saw the birth of two great men:
Empire General, First Mate Gentili Pascal Paoli
Bishop Giustiniani, Bishop of Nebbio the 16th, which made an inventory of sacred heritage of Corsica, as well as a geographical study of the island.

The photo was taken from the dock marina. I hope to be up to the suns of my big brother:
