The Alta Rocca
The Path of DiscoveryPass of Bavella [Ph. MA Benedetti]
Further yet, the tradition teaches us that the transhumance led to the plateau of the Cuscio, situated behind the Incudine (the Anvil). There, at the beginning of the 18th century, a procession of shepherds greeted the king Theodore de Neuhoff, this noble westphalian crowned monarch by the Corsican, and brought him to Porto-vecchio. They pass along this deep gorge which lines the Peaks of Bavella then they went down to the sea, leaving the country of the mouflons, this ovine race which became the symbol of Corsica.
I did again this way which snakes through the scrub until the plateau of Bavella, to the extreme point of the Natural Park.
[ ] Once we have passed the sheepfolds, we access to a point of view
which dominates the sea.
