The most Corsican of all Corsican towns, Sartène is a medieval mountain hideaway with a rich and romantic history. Experience echoes of its ancient dramas in winding, cobbled streets as your guide recounts tales of pirates, sieges, and feuding families. Then visit the Sainte-Marie Church where those same families were forced to make peace in the 1830s, and see the impressive artefacts that form the centrepiece of the town's famous Good Friday procession. Modern Sartène also beckons, with time to explore its thriving shops before visiting the striking 13th-century Spina-Cavallu Bridge, set against a beautiful vineyard backdrop.
