Cortina

This is one of the most authentic villages and the most endearing of the village. " I Curtini " means " enclosure , the court ", it is the origin of the name of the hamlet. It is placed on a mountainside and faces the island of Elba. It is composed of two distinct parts : Curtina suprana (top) and Curtina suttana ( down). Found , especially in the lower hamlet, beautiful stone houses and a set of arches well preserved. It is however undermined today by undivided (some abandoned houses are at risk). But the magic remains: even families toil , shepherds and peasants , a simple and a hard life that we can imagine .
