Discovering Cap Corse, the village of Sisco invites you to discover the beauty and diversity of its landscapes "picturesque hamlets, Romanesque churches, American houses, round tower of Balba, monastery of Sant'Antone and its bell tower, square tower of Munacaghja...".
The town, ideally located between land, sea, town and village, includes a marina with its beach where many activities are offered such as diving, kayaking, paddleboarding... and also has local shops.
Go for a walk in this typical village of Erbalunga to discover its small streets full of charm. The pretty houses licked by the waves seem to be resting on the sea. You have to stroll through the alleys that lead to the small port, to its colorful fishing boats and to the Genoese tower located at the tip.
A sure hit! Erbalunga depends on the municipality of Brando, it is dispersed in several hamlets and extends over two green valleys.
One can only be won over by this typical village in the east of Cap Corse, first of all by its large fine sandy beach, its dense and fragrant maquis, its stone bridges, its towers, its beautiful fountains and its path devoted to water, which is unavoidable.
An adorable little fishing port very famous as the kingdom of lobster. Centuri offers a dazzling panorama of the tip of the Cape, especially from the Mattei mill.
Going down the winding road to reach this port, a stop at the hamlet of Cannelle is strongly recommended. Of Roman origin, with its schist and cobbled streets, it will lead you to a fountain nestled in a cave next to an old wash house.
A village once very populated thanks to its many agricultural, industrial, maritime and commercial activities. This town was known for its largest closed asbestos deposit since 1965.
When we arrive at the top of the village, we can see this magnificent bell tower. Canari is a town offering many starting points for hiking trails.
Macinaggio - Rogliano
At the end of the east coast of Cap Corse is the village of Macinaggio, the island's first fishing port. This is where the coastal path starts, which runs along the shore to Centuri. It is the ideal hike to discover the fauna and flora (myrtle, arbutus, rosemary, immortelle, etc.), appreciate the beauty of the landscape, discover the Finocchiarola islands (archipelago classified as a nature reserve and also a refuge for many seabirds) as well as the island of Giraglia and its marvelous Genoese towers (Santa Maria tower and Agnellu tower).
While following this path, and in order to enjoy the sun, a short stop is essential on the paradisiacal beach of Tamarone or that of Barcaggio.
On the west coast, it is absolutely necessary to discover the typical village of Nonza. Perched on its cliff, it offers an unobstructed view of the immense beach of small black pebbles.
Walk its steep streets and admire the stone houses and their slate roofs as you pass, then sit at the foot of the tower to enjoy the magnificent sunset.
A beautiful valley of oaks, the Misincu stream and its marina of Porticciolo where a music festival is organized every year during the summer.
Going up towards the mountain, you will discover marvels such as the church of St Erasmus, the chapel of Santa Lucia, the old castle of Oveglia in Carbonnacce and not very far, the famous bath of the monks. A very pretty walk that transports you back in time under pleasant shade.
Often in a hurry to discover Cap Corse, we tend to spare Bastia, which nevertheless deserves a day's visit. Its sloping alleys, its staircases and passages, its baroque churches, its tall houses with decrepit walls give it a false air of Naples. We also appreciate its old port very famous for the restaurants. 15 minutes away, reach the town of St Florent via the wine estates of Patrimonio.
You will not be able to leave without having bought a bottle of this good wine, then travel the route of the senses and meet our local producers (olive oil, honey, Corsican charcuterie, AOC cheese dairy, essential oils, etc.).
