The house of the bandit is located on the falcunaghja (the hawk's refuge), and is also called "A Casetta di Falcunaghja". It is at an altitude of 600m. It is a 17th-century troglodyte house from which you can enjoy an unobstructed view of part of the Balagne region and the Mediterranean Sea.
The storyIt is said that the bandit André Spada stayed here for a few days. The house was built by a former mayor on this eagle's nest in order to better monitor his citizens by means of a telescopic view.
Access by carTake the D13, then the D71 until you reach the village of Feliceto. Park the vehicle in the car park next to the "Chez Rigo" bar.
Itinerary Take the stairs to the road, then left for 150m to the intersection with a tarmac road on the right. Here, the hike is signaled by a sign. The climb is steep, it is necessary to continue until the beginning of a dirt road on the right. Follow the orange road markings to the crest. Turn left, you will reach a chestnut tree and you can also turn right to go to a pass that is between two rocky peaks. Once at the pass, take the left turn and continue to the top of Falconajo. To reach the bandit's house, you have to go through a gate to get around the Falconajo. The return is by the same way.
WarningThe path is not very visible and is encumbered with brambles. It is better to know the area a little. Remember to close the portals because the trails go through private land.
