Create an itinerary including Aiguilles de Bavella (Bavella Needles)
Jagged peaks, large rock walls, and pine trees twisted by the wind characterize Aiguilles de Bavella (Bavella Needles). Seven violet porphyry towers or needles make up the mountainous range, with the highest peak reaching 1,899 m (6,230 ft). The GR 20 (Grande Randonnée hiking trail) passes at the foot of the needles in the Asinao Valley, which is why many people refer to this area as the Towers Asinao. This is a hiking and rock climbing paradise with a multitude of jagged rocky peaks and vast forests with black pine. You can hike a relatively easy path by going to the right of the fountain and walking along the river to see the famous "hole in the bomb" at a height of 1,483 m (4,865 ft). A few miles from the road at the top of the rocky pass stands the soaring white statue of "Notre-Dame des Neiges" (Our Lady of the Snow). Aiguilles de Bavella (Bavella Needles) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

  • The first time I came here. It's amazing and I can't to forgot this place. You can make more activities.
  • Stunning and not to be missed on a Corsica visit. We used a guide from Zonza who took us on a less known loop from 4-9pm. Recommend the sunset walk
