Calenzana's village possesses some jewels which makes one of the most attractive municipalities of Corsica.
The municipality was formerly most populated before Ile-Rousse and Calvi dethrones it. Indeed, the big misery of the inhabitants, in the XIX-th century, provoked the exodus of a big part of the population.
So, the refuge loaded with history because he allowed the XVI-th century to the populations of the coast to settle down there to protect itself from the barbaresque invasion.

On the other hand, the Church Saint Blaise is one of both buildings with three nefs with the one in " la Porta " in Castagniccia. It was built on horseback between XVII and XVIII centuries on the existing bases of the Romanic Church.

Besides, the Church Santa-Restituta was built on the bases of an old Roman churchyard inside which relaying a grave dating the IV-th century, whereas a Romanic nef dating the XI-th century was discovered half a century ago.

The territory includes several big forests and a maritime facade of 30 km. A strong rural activity practices still in it in spite of the exodus: the pasteuralisme as well as the vine growing or still the beekeeping live the main activities.

Finally, Calenzana is the point of departure of the GR20, and is a very frequented stopping-off place.
