Aiguilles de Bavella (Bavella Needles), Zonza

4.8
#1 of 10 in Things to do in Zonza
Jagged peaks, large rock walls, and pine trees twisted by the wind characterize Aiguilles de Bavella (Bavella Needles). Seven violet porphyry towers or needles make up the mountainous range, with the highest peak reaching 1,899 m (6,230 ft). The GR 20 (Grande Randonnée hiking trail) passes at the foot of the needles in the Asinao Valley, which is why many people refer to this area as the Towers Asinao. This is a hiking and rock climbing paradise with a multitude of jagged rocky peaks and vast forests with black pine. You can hike a relatively easy path by going to the right of the fountain and walking along the river to see the famous "hole in the bomb" at a height of 1,483 m (4,865 ft). A few miles from the road at the top of the rocky pass stands the soaring white statue of "Notre-Dame des Neiges" (Our Lady of the Snow). Aiguilles de Bavella (Bavella Needles) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Zonza Edition.

  • Corsica really offers a breathtaking landscape and the needles of Bavella perfectly illustrate this. Really worth the detour to achieve this. The panorama offered is amazing.

  • Beautiful hike aimed at all levels. This site is about an hour thirty of my villa in Olmeto. Typical Inns are the col de Bavella needles, where you can discover local dishes.
