Legend Tours Tèvola: It's called Castellu. The centuries had only been because of this fortress, and the tower stood a little apart at the bottom of the village was abandoned chapel with the last to resist them. She dominated the square two-storey house which she was a strong and whose jagged ruins prolonged spur shale which they seemed to bloom. All framed courtyard paved with slabs of slate as well. It is an extraordinary woman who, seven centuries hence, had built the tower houses. In the collective memory, remain only his name and his legend: It was the Countess Tèvola. They said she had built a tower similar to those into every village in the country over which she reigned. In these times of iron - was it likely to thwart the attacks in which to better manage its people browsing its territory? - She rarely stayed more than a week in each. Also appearing unexpectedly, leaving the middle of the night to go stay in another, it was as if she lived them all. Some even lent him a gift of ubiquity. She raised taxes, dispensed justice, waged war on the occasion. As beautiful as they described it, was not known to no man. Wielding a sword as she fingered the beads easily, dressed in sackcloth and wearing steel corset, it had the nun and the warrior. Today, the fortress was reborn from its ruins, and life has returned. It now bears the name of the lady of Time: The Towers Tèvola.


In the middle of the village of high Baroque specific monument, stands St. Margaret, a cathedral-style church in question, with its front lace, one of the most beautiful in Corsica.

Most visited also the Cascade of Struccia rushing between the walls of a stone circus over which trees bend ageless.
