    To get to this wonderful place you have to get a good walk a little challenging and at times difficult, but great for the view you can see along the way, to arrive earlier at Lac du Melu, after more than an hour, very nice place to take a short break and resume efforts to undertake the most challenging part, other 40 min for a vertical drop of 200 meters other very exciting and fun, and in the end you get the beautiful Lac du Capitellu, a unique show, which pays off of the labours, you can swim (I did) in these clear waters and very cold (chilled to 8 put the year) but really means. one of the most beautiful places of Corsica and one of the best days ever made.

    A Blue Lake, calm and deep, surrounded by steep cliffs. About 45 minutes uphill from Lake melo, Capitello is absolutely one of the places of Corsica "wild" to see. In its icy waters and you can even swim.

    Beautiful, crystal clear mountain lake with spectacular mountain scenery in the background. In the high season strongly frequented, but not as extreme as the Lac de Melo. Die-hard can bathe here also.

    Well worth the trip. The water is a beautiful blue. We saw the eternal snow in July 2017.
