Sartène and its surroundings

The city of Sartène, the most Corsican of the Corsican cities according to Prosper Mérimée, has a departmental museum of prehistory with the most important archaeological heritage resources of the island.
Known for its famous “CATENACCIU”, a Good Friday pilgrimage, Sartène becomes, every year, the scene of a fascinating procession that reproduces Christ’s passion. At 9pm, faithful and non-believers converged on Porta Square to see this timeless ceremony punctuated by the Perdono mio Dio chanted by the crowd.
