It is part of the Corsican regional nature park, where you can find the Corsican nuthatch, the Corsican mouflon, the Corsican trout and the discoglossus.

This village has a very ancient history: a burial site dating back to the Bronze Age was discovered in 2015. The remains of six individuals were discovered inside: two children, a teenager and three adults. This site is located at an altitude of 835 metres, at the southern end of the Lanincu valley.

If you love art, you can visit the parish church of St. Clement (18th century), which contains a painting classified historical monument, The Assumption of the Virgin with St. Clement and St. Anthony. Not far from the church, there are the village cemetery and the war memorial. At 1187 metres above sea level, between Lano and Omessa, you will find the chapel of Sant'Angelo (12th century) that offers a breathtaking view of Central Corsica, between the parish of Talcini and the parish of Vallerustie. This chapel, which is still in good condition, is a good example of the Corsican architectural and cultural heritage.

This village is crossed by the D139 road, which ends in a cul-de-sac. Lano is located at 30 km from Corte, at 59 km from Île-Rousse and at 67 km from Bastia.
