Bergeries de Grotelle

The road (D 623) ends a little way above the sheepfolds (1 375m altitude), old dry-stone buildings which were traditionally used as a stopover by herdsmen and their herds on the road to the Lac de Melo. Enjoy the beauty of this typically alpine landscape: to the right there runs the long ridge between Capu and Chiostru (2 295m altitude), to the left is the massif of Monte Rotondo (2 622m altitude), and in front of you, obscuring the valley, is the jagged peak of Lombarduccio (2 261m altitude). A little uphill of the sheepfolds you will notice some fine specimens of Maritime pine.
