St Marie de l'Assomption cathedral

The cathedral of the diocese of Mariana was built in Bastia, residence of the bishops between 1600 and 1622, on an old church, Santa Maria della Consolazione, dating from the late fifteenth century. This first church that the townsfolk had called Santa Maria because it took the arrembata support on a rock-was too small to contain the crowd of the faithful, when Terra nova, the Genoese town enclosed within its walls, was built.
