Rendez-vous at St. John the Baptist Cathedral of Calvi Calvi fr

Built in the 13th century, this church was created in the Baroque style.

Restored in 1570 after a siege by the French and the Turks, it is located in the upper town, inside the old Genoese fortress.

Beginning in 1625, the cathedral became the residence of the Bishops of Sagone, when they left Vico, to flee the menacing Barbary pirates.
