    Rendez-vous at Ajaccio's Cathedral

    The construction of the Cathedral of the Assumption, started in 1577, was completed in 1593 under Bishop Giulio Giustiniani, whose armouries featured on top of the portal are made from Carrara marble.

    The Emperor was baptised in the cathedral on July 21, 1771.
