Fozzano was the home of the author of Carmen, Prosper Mérimée. This village is a good example of a defensive site from the Middle Ages. The site was originally chosen by the powerful lords Della Rocca for its strategic location overlooking the Gulf of Valinco. The house of Durazzo, enemies of the Mérimée, is a beautiful relic of the past with its defensive battlements and high walls.
