Canale-di-Verde is a commune in the Haute-Corse department of France on the island of Corsica.

Administration[edit]

Canale-di-Verde is part of the canton of Moïta-Verde, together with 13 other communes: Aléria, Moïta, Ampriani, Campi, Chiatra, Linguizzetta, Matra, Pianello, Pietra-di-Verde, Tallone, Tox, Zalana and Zuani.[1]

Geography[edit]

Canale-di-Verde is 19 kilometres (12 mi) to the east of Moïta, but 5 kilometres (3 mi) as the crow flies, on an escarpment hanging over the Plaine Orientale. The commune, which culminates at la punta di a Campana, extends between the sea on the one hand and the torrent of Allistro on the other, at the mouth of which is found a ruined Genoese tower of the same name. The reservoir of Peri there is used to irrigate 26 hectares (64 acres) of vines.
