Capital Balagne, located northwest of the island of beauty, below Cape Calvi snuggled against his stronghold built by the Genoese, who ruled Corsica from 15th to 18th century. The picturesque lanes lead to the pretty marina. All around, a cultural heritage (the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist of the thirteenth, the Baroque church of Santa Maria Maggiore ...) and scenery (sandy beaches, hillsides of orchards and vineyards, colorful jungle. ..). And to think that off fierce battles took place Navy. The famous Admiral Nelson lost his eye during such a seat Calvi in 1794 ... Before beating the Napoleonic fleet at Trafalgar (Spain) eleven years later!
