The Convent of Piedicrocce

At the heart of the Castagniccia, lies Piedicroce and its recently renovated baroque church of St Pierre and St Paul, in the gleaming colours of the era. Classified as an historical monument in 1976, it is one of the most beautiful baroque churches of the region.

The inhabitants of the village have maintained the tradition of the Merendella for Easter Monday. A country meal followed by festivities and accompanied by an artisan fair that takes place in the streets and alleyways of the village. The ivy-covered ruins of the imposing Franciscan Convent of Orezza, destroyed by the Germans in 1943, played a major role in the history of the region during the XVIII century.
