Scala di Santa Regina, Calacuccia

4.4
#54 of 93 in Outdoors in Haute-Corse
Take the scenic route along Scala di Santa Regina to admire the crumbling, rocky landscape filling the gorge. The route is named for its jagged granite terrain, which gives the impression of stairs carved into the rock. The path is traversed by cyclists, hikers, and motorists and spans 810 m (2,657 ft) in length. Historically used to transport cattle, the route remains relatively easy with proper hiking shoes. The trails ends in a humble sheep-herding village. Find out how to plan Calacuccia trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

  • Mythical road of Corsica, we borrowed her nightly walk for 1 week. Attention at the junction with coaches there is little space a few times he has to go back several meters to find a recess in the mountain. Sensitive soul close your eyes!

  • We have the Défilé de la Scala di Santa Regina end August 2017 visited. A narrow valley road with sharp curves, overhanging rocks, and granite outcrops leads through the deep gorge. It is separated from the brink often only by a small wall. The landscape is stunning and not words to describe. Must be seen!

  • Gorges of the Golu, plus River in Corsica, the Scala di Santa Regina is a route that connects Castirla bridge to the high Valley of Niolu. The very narrow road winds through a unique mineral universe. A legend claims that the devil himself would have dug the furrow. A pedestrian route, "The path of transhumance", borrows this narrow gorge of the fountain of la Scala until hands-on then continued in the Niolu, the Falasorma up to Calinzana.
