Description
The starting point of this walk (which is quite long, but easy) is located near a building which now is in a bad state of repair and which in the past was one of the jewels of the regional natural park of Corsica, the Paisolu d'Aïtone. After having found the starting point, you must take the forest track and follow the indications. During the walk you can run into some ruins of old buildings built during the Genoese period.
This walk follows the route des condamnés - this path was used by prisoners of the Coti-Chiavari penitentiary (a commune near Ajaccio) who were sentenced to hard labour. During this walk, you could see the famous Corsican nuthatch, the only species of bird endemic to metropolitan France. Please pay attention because this species is considered vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
