Guitera-les-Bains is located at an altitude of 600 metres and is part of the ancient parish of Talavo. This village is very charming, surmounted by medium-sized mountains and located in the middle of a forest. Guitera-les-Bains was known for its hot sulphurous water spring, but unfortunately the thermal baths of Guitera closed years ago. This village is part of the regional natural park of Corsica.
The main watercourses are the Taravo – a coastal river that flows directly to the Mediterranean Sea –the Ese and the Fiumicellu.
In Guitera-les-Bains you can find the ruins of the castle of the Bozzi family, who played an important role in the history of Corsica. In the 16th-century, this family was one of the few families in Corsica to have its rank of nobility recognised by the Superior Council.
Furthermore, you can find some houses that have been recently restored, but which have retained the charm of the past.
Art lovers can run into the ruins of several chapels, such as the old Romanesque church of St John the Baptist and the old chapel dedicated to St Peter. You should also take a look at the ancient thermal centre of Guitera, although it is not perfectly preserved.
Guitera-les-Bains is located at 54 km from Ajaccio, at 72 km from Sartène and at 88 km from Corte. This village is crossed by the D28 road.
