Sartène is built like an amphitheatre on top of the Rizzanèse valley, 13 km away from Propriano. « The most Corsican of the Corsican cities », according to Prosper Mérimée, still has a lot of character with its strict old and its traditions, such as the extraordinary procession of the Catenacciu, perhaps the oldest ceremony in the island. Discovering the old district, a true maze intersected with stairs and arched passageways, will be the highlight of your visit to Sartène.
