Photographer's Note

A photo of a style of construction in the desert of Agriates. Made of stone and earth, these pagliaghju served as shelter for livestock and farmers Agriates. This way of building found throughout the Corsican, and the bush full of small wonders. Unfortunately, fire and water finally have reason for these houses which eventually collapsed. Land is an excellent insulator but must be beaten regularly, or the roofing changed.

A word about Agriates:
The Agriate lie on the four municipalities of Saint Florent, Santu Petru di Tenda, San
Gavinu di Tenda and Palasca which are respectively the cantons of the Conca d'Oru, the High Nebbiu and Belgodère.
The territory included in the consultation process extends the range of the Roya Ostriconi range from east to west it is bordered on the south by road D81, which joined in Saint Florent Ostriconi through the hamlet of Casta. Its area is 15 000 ha, of which a first third is at the Conservatoire du Littoral, a second property in east indivisibly two common Santu Petru di Tenda and San Gavinu di Tenda and the last third belongs to private owners. The coastline is 37 km with the vast majority is acquired by the Conservatory (93%).

Since 2006, this major site is managed by the Conseil Général of Haute-Corse.

This photo was taken at the site of the beach Saleccia we can achieve that all-terrain vehicle. The desert of Agriates was always occupied by a people of farmers, it has been deserted as 20th rer. The desertification has fanned the appetite of many manufacturers, the region has been spared by the Conservatoire du Littoral. Many tourists come to hike and can spend the night at a campsite or in one of these pagliaghju restored and converted into lodging.
