Piscia di Gallu, Zonza

4.3
#3 of 10 in Things to do in Zonza
One of the most beautiful waterfalls in Corsica, Piscia di Gallu is quite spectacular at a height of 60 m (196 ft). You can descend the trail fully equipped with handrails, or you can adventure on the old tourist trail along the cascades down to the plateau overlooking the creek. There is a good swimming spot in the pool right at the throat of the river where the waterway narrows. Less than a mile from the Ospédale Dam, the trail crosses a ford where you can cross the river on foot, before it flows into the open landscape overlooking the river that feeds the falls.

  • A good walk, an hour or maybe a little less each way. The scenery becomes more spectacular as you approach the waterfall, although the "Rooster's P***" wasn't perhaps as virile as it might be in the r...  more »

  • You won't expect that waterfall after you've seen the little pools before above it. Although the waterfall is not directly accessible, the road that brings you there goes over hot rocks, through a nice smelling pine forest, over a river and from there on you can choose to go either down to the little swimming pools or straight up to the famous rock and view over the sea and coastline. And it is absolutely worth the hike! Take a break in the shade underneath the trees, because from here on it's downhill all the way, supported by a little line to hold on to while stepping down towards the view over the waterfall. Enjoy the moisture in the little valley because the way back is hot and high. Last part only recommended for people, kids and dogs who can climb rocks and aren't afraid of heights.
