Holidays in Corsica
The Gulf of Valinco,
|Bougainvillée and the old wall
There is not, in the isle, a town, a village, even a
path which does not bear its legend or the mark of history, which is small
or large, happy or bloody. The one of the region of the Haut Taravo and
Sartenais belongs, for its part before all, to Prehistory.
In a nature that gods have wanted to be as rich as varied,
of seas and salt, of mountain and shade, or of hills and softness, a large
number of vestiges of the megalithic civilization have been excavated
So, slightly in the North of the seaside resort of Propriano,
Filitosa, its olive trees and its superb statues-menhirs which are eight
thousand years of age, Fontanaccia and its magnificent dolmen called "La
Forge du Diable", or Cauria and its menhirs in alignment which attest
without a doubt the presence of a high place of religious cult.
Less ancient rite but still alive nowadays, the Catenacciu
- symbol procession of the Passion of Christ on the Golgotha way- takes,
each Good Friday since the Middle Ages, the soul of the beautiful and
austere Sartene, headland town with many passions, whose solidity and
pride remind us of those of Lion cut in the granite of Roccapina, not
far from there.
