The walk in both directions has more and less levels of difficulty and takes about 3 hours.
To reach the path from the village center, take the granite steps to the left of the Madonna di Loreto church and follow it to the end of the village, where the path no. 103 begins, which leads to the summit of San Bartolomeo. Here you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the houses of Chiessi and Pomonte and a unique view of the islands of Pianosa and Montecristo.
Climbing enthusiasts will also find a natural gym called “le vie di roccia”.
You will also find the ruins of the church of San Bartolomeo. It is a Romanesque building from the 12th century, of which only the south wall is left, which also has apsidal bends.
To continue the route, you must trace your steps back to the junction with path number 104, which leads you to a valley. In this section you may have the chance to meet herds of muflons and buzzards.
After a short stretch, the path will descend, allowing you to cross the valley to the village of Pomonte. If you walk along a side street in the city, after about 30 meters on the right begins “la via del tramonto”, which follows the provincial road and you can return to Chiessi and enjoy a spectacular view of Corsica.
