Salice is located at 650 metres above sea level and is part of the ancient parish of Cruzini, of which it was the main village. Salice overlooks the valley of Cruzzini and is characterised by its charming streta – narrow streets which connect the houses of Salice.
This village is an excellent starting point for many excursions and enjoys a relatively cool climate even during the summer season: it is a true paradise for those seeking peace and quiet.
The main waterways are the Liamone – a coastal river that flows directly into the Mediterranean Sea to the west of Corsica – and several streams such as Erbaju, Melu, Tartavellu and Pisale.
This village is part of a natural area of ecological, faunal and floristic interest: Forêt de Libiu, Guagnu et Pastricciola et milieux rupestres de Guagnu. Salice is part of the regional natural park of Corsica.
Art lovers can visit the parish church of St Mary (19th century), which replaced the old parish church that was too small for the village population and in very poor condition. This church contains several objects of artistic and cultural interest and is flanked by some barrel-vaulted side chapels.
In Salice there are several chapels and several buildings – in particular houses, ovens and mills – that are part of the General inventory of cultural heritage.
Salice is located at 50 km from Cargèse, at 55 km from Ajaccio and at 85 km from Corte. This village is crossed by the D4 road.
