The Museum of the Alta Rocca Region in Levie

Le lapin-rat ou prolagus

In a rich area which counts many archeological sites, this very famous museum presents 11 000 years old of human occupation and vestiges from the sites of Cucuruzzu and Capula. We can see “la Dame de Bonifacio” (The Lady from Bonifacio) the oldest human vestige discovered in Corsica.  We find the skeleton of an extinct animal species (the Prolagus or “rabbit-rat”) a collection of jewels from Iron Age and an  ivory Christ from 1516.


Resistance Museum in Zonza

High place for resistance, the micro area welcomes in Zonza a museum about the resistance which testifies, through many documents, relics and reconstitutions,  the history of the Second World War (1939-1945) and exemplary acts of resistance  the inhabitant did. A trip which will make you live those moments thanks to the models full of realism. 

Archeological sites of Cucuruzza and Capula

Site préhistorique de CucuruzzuThe site of Cucuruzzu has been discovered by François De Lanfranchi in the 70’s after works for the opening of a granite quarry in Lévie, near to the San Laurenzu Chapel. The Casteddu of Cucuruzzu is made up of  a protohistorical village built in the early Bronze Age around 1800 BC, a circular tower built around 1500 BC, a monumental complex built after the destruction of the tower. Today, it is classified as an historic monument (this is a French classification) and listed on the World Heritage of UNESCO. A pavement path adorned with oaks leads to the medieval Chapel of Capula from the Bronze Age too.

A Festa di l'Oliu Novu

A Festa di l'Oliu Novu 2013 à Sainte Lucie de Tallano

Every year, at the end of March, the Comité d’animations Culturelles Tallanais organises artisan trade fair “A Festa di l’Oliu Novu”. The committee adheres to the Federation des Foires et des Routes Rurales Agricoles et Artisanales de Corse (FFRAC – Federation of Fairs and rural farming and artisan Road trip in Corsica). Sainte Lucie de Tallano welcomes every year the beginning of spring by the celebration of one of the local wealth: Olive oil. During two days, people can discover the different traditional manners to product olive oil thanks to exhibitions and squeeze demonstrations at the ecomuseum.  All the typical products are presented with the olive oil: cheeses, cooked meats, chestnut flour, honey marmalades and wine. The local craftsmen propose their production: work with wood, stone, leather, glass and knifes basketwork, pottery, jewels and works of arts. The specificity and authenticity of the products proposed to the public contribute to the success of  Festa di Oliu Novu which receive some 5 000 visitors. These days are the occasion to maintain the tradition  in a festal mood and establish the dialogue between producers and consumers. This is the most adequate place to promote the quality products and as a consequence the prosperity of the local economy too.
