The town of Lumio, above the Gulf of Calvi, is a place that combines the glitzy and the sober. Emerging from a sea of ??olive tree with its pink granite buildings, it consists of austere tall houses, and a beautiful baroque church. Indeed religious buildings are plentiful: the Italian church with its bell, the granite and ocher chapels of San Petro and San Paolo, and Calenzana House (eighteenth century) where the poor were welcomed. From Lumio, Calvi is accessible by following the coast by car.
