This micro- north- east of Corsica is an area bounded on the north by the terminal portion of the longest river of the island: the Golu . To the west the horizon is blocked by the mountain range I Sant'Anghjuli which rises to 1,218 m.

Nuvale Creek , which rises to 730 m. of altitude, I walk Sant'Anghjuli , sharing the space thus defined by two since its mountainous part to the plain . In the northern part are the current municipalities Viscuvatu , Loretu and Venzulasca ; those in the southern part of Sorbu - Ocagnani , Castellà , Penta and Porri . Loretu Porri and have not, or no longer , or plain or sea outlet . Other communal areas are organized in parallel bands stretching from east to west along a coastal - plain - mountain carving .
