The little harbour of the commune of Brando encompasses its old houses sitting just above the surface of the water on a promontory of green schist, over which looms an ancient and partly ruined Genoese tower. Take a lazy stroll around the port area, through the flower-decked squares and up the steps of the the little streets shaded by plane trees, laurels and palm trees. Be sure to see the frescoes of the Chapelle Notre-Dame-des-Neiges at Castello (3km west), which are reputed to be the oldest on the island.
