Cultural Events Balagne|
Sporting Events Balagne|
Often known as “the garden of Corsica” due to its fertile hills, Balagne is still known as “Saint Balagne” because of the large number of religious buildings there. A second adjective befitting of this place is “festive”, as everything that goes on here is an excuse for a party or festival.
At the foot of Montegrosso, explore Calenza which is set against a backdrop of olive groves, and provides the starting point for the GR 20 (long-distance hiking route).
To see: the three villages of Montegrosso, Lunghignano and its oil mill, Cassano and its star-shaped square, Montemaggiore and its commanding views over the gulf of Calvi. Sant’Antonio, a perfectly preserved medieval eyrie, Pigna, a lively craft centre and Corbara with its highly Baroque church of the Annunciation and convent that are still used as a place of retreat.
