We stumbled across this church during a day's visit to Bonifacio and it provided a cool haven on a blisteringly hot day. The interior has recently been restored to its full glory and is stunning. Do visit.

Nice paintings in this old small church. It offers a free entry but there is not much in there except nice roof paintings. You can buy candles to light for 2€ each.

Set into the Citadel this is a 15th Century church that is so peaceful and a cool have in the summer months. Completely free to enter but making a small donation to light a candle helps with the upkeep!!
