Corrano is located at an altitude of 450 metres and is part of the ancient parish of Talavo. This village, which is surrounded by medium-sized mountains, is part of an agricultural region and is particularly wooded: fruit trees, almond trees, fig trees, olive trees and vineyards.
The main watercourses are the Taravo – a coastal river that flows directly into the Mediterranean Sea to the west of the island – and several streams such as the Ciaconu, the Cestratu, the Arghja Alta and the Piscia in Alba – which in some places forms small waterfalls.
The first Sunday of August, Jean Marius and Marie Antoinette Massimi organise the fête de la terre (“the feast of the earth”). Various activities are organised for the occasion such as a sheep-shearing competition, a workshop dedicated to the production of some typical cheeses, a pratical demonstration of hunting dogs, a carriage ride and an exhibition dedicated to old farming tools.
Art lovers can visit the parish church of St Nicholas (15th century), which was restored several times in the 19th and in the 20th century. This church is flanked by a side chapel and has a campanile built by Basilio Benedetti.
You can run into the ruins of two chapels of Roman origin, the chapel of St Gavino and the chapel of the Trinity.
Corrano is located at 48 km from Ajaccio, at 88 km from Corte and at 89 km from Cargèse. This village is crossed by the D83 road.
