Sartène : Michelin's recommendations
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.
