History and symbols of Corsica

One of the legends about the origin of the name given to the island of Corsica tells us that the Greeks would have called it Kallistê (in ancient Greek: “the most beautiful”). True or false, this mythical island is the crown jewel of the Mediterranean sea and offers an extraordinary cycling experience. Its topography makes it a mountain on top of the sea.

Being the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Corsica has long been part of the Republic of Genoa before becoming a french department during the revolution, on January 15th 1790.

Its immense forests and numerous summits at 2.000 meters above sea level have long been a challenge for its potential invaders to penetrate its lands. The island has a rich and preserved biodiversity with many protected reserves. Its mountains, snowy in the winter, entail demanding passes, expect a hilly riding experience, at the best climatic / touristic period.
