Felce is located at an altitude of 800 metres and is part of the ancient parish of Alesani, Upper Corsica. This village lies at the foot of the Mont des Tre Pieve and is made up of several hamlets: Milaria, Piova, Volgheracciu and Poggiale. Felce is an excellent starting point for many excursions and to discover a nature that is still quite unspoilt.

This village is part of a second-generation natural area of ecological, faunal and floristic interest: Châtaigneraies de la petite Castagniccia. Felce is part of the regional natural park of Corsica.

Petrus Cyrnæus (1447-1506) was born in Felce and published De rebus corsisis libri IV, usque ad annum 1506. His books are considered the first to illustrate the history of Corsica, from antiquity to 1506. Contemporary historians – although they recognize that Petrus Cyrnæus was the first who wrote the history of Corsica – do not consider his books sufficiently objective. In fact, Petrus Cyrnæus was a true patriot and was inclined to glorify the island and its inhabitants.

Art lovers can visit the parish church of St Come and St Damien (17th century), which is part of the General inventory of cultural heritage. Inside this church, you can admire several objects that are also part of this Inventory, for example the secondary altar of the Holy Cross and St Roch.  In Volgheracciu, there is the chapel of Our Lady of Seven Sorrows, which contains a statue of Saint Anthony of Padua that is part of the General inventory of cultural heritage.
To finish this artistic tour, you can go to Milaria to admire the chapel of St Joseph (17th century), which houses the altarpiece entitled Marriage of the Virgin.
