Palais des Gouverneurs

The Palais des Gouverneurs génois is a must see when you are in Bastia. The Palace of Governors, former Museum of Ethnology Corsica, now houses the municipal museum focuses on Bastia city history. Old watchtower and small castle before being transformed into a palace in the sixteenth century, the Palais des Gouverneurs génois is ranked as “Monument Historique” since 1977 and became the property of the city of Bastia in 1986.
