Penta Di Casinca

The only Corsican village classified Natural Site

The historic heart of the village, built on an rocky overhand, overlooks plain of Casinca and offers a stunning viewpoint on the Tyrrhenian Sea and Tuscan Islands. A 'Chjassi di a Memoria' heritage trail can be done to pace up and down the village, in order to discover this site that is well worth the detour.

Because of its beauty and architecture, the village of Penta di Casinca has been classified since 28 August 1978 by Decree, and is recognised as a 'Picturesque site of Department of Corsica'. It's an official French label for natural sites whose outstanding scenic, artistic, historical, scientific, legendary or picturesque value merits qualitative management in the form of prior authorisation for any works that involve altering the state or appearance of the protected area.
