Dui Sevi-Dui Sorru - Cruzini - Cinarca

This region features gulfs and incredible pink granite rocks that are now included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Higher up, you can enjoy walking through forests of Lariciu pine trees, waterfalls and “natural swimming pools” with crystal-clear water. And then there are the chestnut trees, hillsides shaped into terraces, orchards and vegetable gardens. Along the well-trodden paths, the mildness of the climate brings out the scent of immortelles, myrtle, thyme, rock rose and juniper! This paradise is tinged with happiness… but also with ashes, as witnessed by the many Genoan towers and forts that protected local populations from pirates and by the villages where the spirits of yesteryear’s lords still reign.

What to see and do

Scandola Natural Reserve; Porto Gulf and Girolata Gulf, Girolata Fort; the rocky inlets at Piana; the Genoan bridge at Ota; the Musée de la Bruyère [ The Heather Museum] (Porto); Aïtone Forest; Lake Crenu; waterfalls and “natural summing pools”; Monte Rotondu; Saint-François Convent (Vico); churches (especially the two churches in Cargese, one following the Roman Rite, the other the Byzantine Rite); Castellu de Cinarca (castle and mediaeval site); the Guagno baths with their renowned sulphur water; Ancone Tower; Punta di a Spusata and the Spilonca gorges.
