WEEKEND ESCAPE: A STUNNING CONVENT ON CORSICA
Convent SanFrancescu of Oletta is a magical place located on the island of Corsica in France. The Franciscan convent dates back to the Eighteenth Century. It was left in ruins and artist Candida Romero spent eleven years to restore the compound to its current glory. Nowadays San Francescu has a contemporary feeling while respecting the original functionalities of the convent. It is a lively place of artistic creation in all its forms (music, photography, dance, theater etc.). The monastery is available for hire and makes a wonderful place for photo shoots and movies.
