Description
Porri played a very important role during the Second World War: you can visit the Grotte des Maquisards, where the Resistance set up its headquarters. In this cave leaflets and underground newspapers were printed to organise the fight against the German and Italian occupiers.
This walk is quite easy, but you should pay attention if you have children. After having parked your car, you must find the sign indicating the start of this walk: take the road and walk until you leave the last house of the village behind you. Feel free to open the gate in front of you and continue walking along the orange-marked path until you reach a ruined house. Continue walking following the orange signs. Before reaching the cave you must pass by a huge rock: the access to the cave is quite easy and is made much safer by a parapet, but  you must pay attention and wear a good pair of shoes!
Go back along the same itinerary.
