Pearl of the Costa Serena
Halfway between Porto-Vecchio, the “city of salt”, and Bastia, the old citadel of Genoese governors, Ghisonaccia was once the starting point for shepherds and their flocks for annual transhumance. The village is now one of the pearls of the Costa Serena dedicated to tourists in search of sun, turquoise sea and nature on the island of Beauty. The residents of the Perla di Mare holiday club can reach it in a few minutes on foot or by bike and can find all the shops, administrative services and amenities necessary for a successful holiday between the sea and the mountains. While the summer months are usually very popular, spring and autumn, less populated, still offer mild temperatures and the permanent spectacle of preserved fauna and flora.
Must see sites of Ghisonaccia
Inescapable sitesIn the village stands the little white church Saint-Michel, which sports on the ceiling of its nave neo-Byzantine frescoes illustrating biblical scenes. For history buffs, the A Bandera museum traces the military past of Corsica, while the municipal library presents temporary art exhibitions. A reputable market of producers of the country is held every week on the Place de la Mairie. Beaches, immensities of fine sand watched over the summer succeed, including the beach of Vignale, on the edge of the forest of Pinia, which is none other than the conservatory of natural areas of the island, where hides the deer of Corsica among the green oaks. Nearby you can see the vast pond of Urbino, a meeting place for flamingos, gray herons and other rare birds of Ghisonaccia.
