The mountains and hiking in Porto Vecchio

A mountain in the sea

Corsica is certainly known for its beaches but it should not be forgotten that it is a mountain in the sea, and in southern Corsica, it literally flows into the Mediterranean. In the heart of the Corsican Regional Natural Park, this mountainous area of the Alta Rocca is made up of magnificent preserved resources, with the peaks of the Bavella and Incudine peaks at 1855m and 2136m respectively. Here nature is the master: chestnut forests rub shoulders with holm oaks, beech woods and Lariccio pines in a beautiful carpet of greenery. Picturesque and typical villages that line the valley bear witness to the history of those Corsicans of yesteryear, whose refuge was the mountain.
