Propriano has been the victim of many communities: Greeks, Romans, Pisans and Turks that have developed in the current territory. Vandal in the 1873th century and Saracens in the XNUMXth century. This small town that has grown large owes its development to the construction of the road that connects Ajaccio with Bonifacio, drawn in XNUMX.




 

A little further south, you will find a true piece of paradise, the Bay of Campomoro located at the southern end of the Gulf of Propriano (20 minutes). There you will find a pretty village and a well-protected beach. Climb the Genoese tower, the view is magnificent from its top.

There you will find very beautiful coves, you will love it. If you go in high season, go early in the morning (9 am) to have places; otherwise go straight to the parking lot next to where the emergency helicopter lands.


The Pianottoli Caldarello area (45 minutes by car) further south is very beautiful, as is the Tizzano area.
