Holy Cross Brotherhood is the oldest church in the city, it already existed in the early fifteenth century and has been classified as a historical monument in 1931. Rococo style unfolds with grace and exubérance. The chapel crucifix of the Miracles is particularly noteworthy with its coffered painted Renaissance and black christ placed in the niche. This miraculous deemed christ, was found in 1428 by two Bastia fishers, at sea not far from town. Back to the old port and "watched" during the night by pious women, it was found in the morning hanging from a tree exactly where the chapel was built. Bastia Tourist Office
