An old and picturesque village, sent as a sentry behind Mount Oppido. Village of the canton of Moïta-Verde until 2014 and current village of the canton of Castagniccia.
Mount Oppido was once a strategic point with a view to the pond of Diana. To protect Aleria, the Romans had established an oppidum.
The Chiatrais built, at the beginning of the 15th century, "torre" to resist the attackers. The other houses, smaller in size, came to agglomerate against these strategic points. Chiatra has always opposed the Genoese. In 1511, when Renuccio Della Rocca was defeated, he was looted and burned. Stowed behind the banner of Sampiero Corso, he experienced the same tragedy in 1564.
