The Restonica gorges - Tourism in the Upper Corsica

On the outskirts of the town of Corte begin the Restonica gorges. The Restonica river lined with rocks and forests, is easily accessible on foot. Moreover, the torrent is a very popular location with swimmers. It's guaranteed to cool you down! The Restonica valley is also perfect for the practice of the other activities, such as hiking and the climbing.

The narrow road of the gorges, fifteen kilometres long, leads to the Grotelle sheepfolds, a location dotted with dry-stone buildings. This place offers a magnificent panoramic view of the surrounding mountains and is the departure point for hikes in the upper Restonica valley, and especially for the Melo lake and the Capitello lake.
