Description
The Pasciolo fort was built in 1770 by the French army to watch over the Gola of Vecchio. During the Convention period (1792-1795), General Morand turned it into a prison to imprison the rebels of the region. Despite some consolidation work carried out during the 20th century, this fort has never returned to its former glory.
After having parked your car, you must look for the starting point of this walk and walk on the T 20 road for about fifty metres. Take the path on your right until you reach a crossroads: now you must take the path which belongs to the Mare à Mare nord circuit and you must walk towards the fort, which is visible from afar. Halfway up the climb, you must leave the main track and take the path which climbs to your left and which will allow you to walk through the Corsican scrub and to reach the Pasciolo fort.
To return to the starting point you must take the track which descends and that will allow you to return on the T 20 road.
