Entre Profane et Sacré - Sorio Map

The villages of the Nebbiu form a balcony, and this hike will show you why: at the bend of an oak tree, between the leaves of the olive and chestnut trees, a splendid view of the Gulf of Saint-Florent opens up. The dry stone walls dress this path, and the maquis reveals its charms: Church, springs, and Pagliaghji are revealed as you walk. From Rapale to Pieve and finally, Sorio, take a trip back in time at the rhythm of nature, with stops in the villages, rich in heritage treasures. The return from Sorio to Pieve and Rapale is less steep.


Les villages du Nebbiu forment un balcon et cette randonnée vous montrera pourquoi : au détour d'un chêne, entre les feuilles des oliviers et des châtaigniers, s'ouvre une vue splendide sur le golfe de Saint-Florent. Les murs en Pierre sèche habillent ce chemin et le maquis vous révèle ses charmes : Église, sources et Pagliaghji se dévoilent au fil des pas. Depuis Rapale vers Pieve et enfin Sorio, faites un voyage dans le temps au rythme de la nature, avec des haltes dans les villages, riches en trésors patrimoniaux. Le retour depuis Sorio vers Pieve et Rapale comporte moins de dénivelé.
