Presentation What to do in the Ajaccio region?

On 22 March 2017, the Grand Site des Iles Sanguinaires et de la pointe de la Parata was awarded the "Grand Site de France" label.
This label, awarded for 6 years by the Ministry of the Environment, Energy and the Sea, rewards the commitment of local actors to the preservation and sustainable management of the landscape heritage constituted by the Pointe de la Parata and the Iles Sanguinaires.

The site bears the traces of the tumultuous history of our island. The various epics have left here a built heritage which today blends into a remarkable landscape. At La Parata, the wind and the sea spray shape the landscape. The plant masses are sculpted in an immutable way and order the place of each species of plant according to its resistance to wind and salt.
