Lama - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Upper Corsica

Located between Calvi and St. Florent, in the valley Ostriconi, Lama is a former village corsica authenticity remarkably preserved.

The first houses were built on a rocky ridge at the foot of a watchtower. Two architectural styles coexist harmoniously: one large and beautiful mansions Tuscan-inspired 18th century, on the other hand, the medieval old town with its small houses with roof terraces glued to each other.

Flowers and plants are installed in many pots, niches carved in the rocks, masonry walls. The terraces shaded by vine arbors discover by browsing the many village streets.
