Description
Olmi-Cappella was the most important village of the old parish of Giussani and today it is the perfect starting point for beautiful mountain walks such as the Olmi-Cappella heritage trail or the trail from Olmi-Cappella to Belgodère. This walk is ideal for families and will allow you to discover the flora and fauna of the region and various architectural treasures. 
The starting point of this walk is located next to the church of St Nicola: you must take the path down towards the Genoese bridge which is located to the north of the village of Mausoleo. You can reach and cross this bridge by means of a mule track that is in excellent condition.
After the last house of Mausoleo you must take the path to the right towards the Francioni stream, which you must cross and run along for a few minutes before crossing it a second time thanks to another Genoese bridge.
The path turns away from the stream and climbs a little before descending gently to reach the Genoese bridge over the stream of Tartagine. Keep walking and take a look at the ruins of the old mills.
To return to the starting point, you must reach the Francioni bridge (a historic crossing point used by Corsicans since the dawn of time), cross it and take the path back to Olmi-Cappella.
