Lucciana (Corsican pronunciation: [luttʃana]) is a commune of the Haute-Corse department of France on the island of Corsica.

Geography[edit]

Situated on the eastern coast of Corsica nearly 20 km (12 mi) to the south of Bastia, the commune extends itself to the mountainous summit as far as the twisted lagoon of La Marana bordering the Tyrrhenian Sea.

The international airport of Bastia - Poretta is situated in the commune.

History[edit]

The Roman town of Mariana had been founded by Gaius Marius in 93 BC. It was the seat of the Roman Catholic diocese of Mariana, associated with the dioceses of Pisa and Genoa, which lasted until it was transferred, along with all Corsican bishoprics, by the Concordat of 1801 to the Diocese of Ajaccio. The former cathedral, generally known as the church of La Canonica, is a notable Romanesque building of the 12th century.
