Le Casteddu de Cucuruzzu

In addition to the historical interest of the site, a very pleasant family walk awaits you. Le Casteddu de Cucuruzzu, a fortified settlement with an 8-meter diameter tower, is one of the most important monumental sites in the Alta Rocca region.

Bavella Needles

Magnificent Landscapes

The Bavella Needles (I Forchi di Bavedda in Corsican) overlook the pass of the same name (1,218 meters), connecting Alta Rocca to the east coast of Corsica. As an alpine variant and the penultimate stage of the famous GR20 trail, Bavella is characterized by its rugged peaks, large rock walls, and twisted laricciu pine trees shaped by the wind. Magnificent landscapes await you at every turn.
