    Corsica "often conquered, never subjugated", was successively Pisan and Genoese and has been French since 1768. It enjoys a particular constitutional status.

    Corsica is also called "the island of beauty", not without reason. The mountain plunges into the sea: the diversity of its landscapes and its preservation from the aggressions of development and tourism, make it one of the pearls of the Mediterranean.

    The places of interest for tourists in Corsica are varied: sea (beach, scuba diving, sailing), mountain hiking, ... horse riding !

    Gastronomy: Corsican cuisine is a mix of French and Italian influences, and offers many unique dishes. The chestnut was one of the main ancient Corsican foods. Additionally, most of the island's domestic pigs are semi-wild, released to feed much of the year, and the charcuterie reflects this excellent flavor. Typical Corsican charcuterie includes lonzu, coppa, ham, figatellu and sausage made from pork or wild boar. Canistrelli are typical Corsican pastries that come in many different flavors. Corsica also produces an olive oil with a unique taste made from ripe fruits harvested from under the trees. Many villages have small shops selling local products.
