Casaglione is located at 140 metres above sea level and is part of the ancient parish of Cinarca. Today the centre of the village is the hamlet of Tiuccia, a seaside resort that attracts locals and tourists. Pay attention: the beach of Tiuccia is quite dangerous because of the marine currents can be misleading!
The main waterways are the Liamone – a river that flows into the Mediterranean Sea to the west of Corsica – and the streams Cagna, Calivella, Carbonaja, Traja and Villana.

This village has a very ancient history: we know that Casaglione has been inhabited since the Neolithic period and a very big dolmen overlooks the village. Casaglione hosts a Neolithic site (161 m) where archaeologists have unearthed several finds dating back to the Final Neolithic and to the Copper Age, such as excavated rocks, small vessels and small bowls.

Art lovers can visit the parish church of St Fridianus (19th century), which was built on the foundations of the old parish church that was destroyed by torrential rains. The façade of this church, which contains several paintings classified historical monument, is animated by four pillars that support a moulded entablature topped by a classical pediment.
If you like walking, you can run into the remains of two castles, built to protect the village.

Casaglione is located at 27 km from Cargèse, at 33 km from Ajaccio and at 96 km from Corte. This village is crossed by the D201 road.
