Gorges de l'Asco, Asco

4.9
#19 of 93 in Outdoors in Haute-Corse
To reach the remote villages of the valley of Asco, you must first pass through Gorges de l'Asco. Drive along a nearly 4 km (2.5 mi) defile, featuring a wild, desolate landscape of red granite and sparse scrub. The thin road follows the winding course of the river, with rock and scree slopes rising up on either side, prickly juniper bushes clinging to them. Close to the river bed, a few small pines add a touch of green. At points along the ravine, the river collects into clear pools that may just inspire you to jump in. Near the top, pause to admire the old stone bridge, perched precariously astride the running water. Plan a Asco trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • Need to park the car in the village. Take the street next to the bar restaurant "the Genoese bridge" and continue to the Church St Michel. Go down to the Church and get around it by the left. A wooden sign indicated the Genoese bridge in 15 minutes walk. You e mprunterez a trail to the bridge. Closed shoes because the stones roll a bit under the feet. The landscape is magnificent and we appreciate the quiet end of September.
