Nonza clusters around its church and old tower built on a rock. The village's name is thought to come from its strategic location: Nonza is a Corsican word meaning "herald". Soak up the village atmosphere in its pretty flower-decked square, where tables are arranged around the fountain and statue of Pascal Paoli. Nearby, fruit trees and terraced gardens, sheltered from the wind, climb the lower slopes of Mont Stavo with views of the sea.
