Geography[edit]

Albitreccia is a commune in the Canton of Saint Mary Sicché in South Corsica. The main village is located in the Taravo valley near the town of Grosseto. The commune has several centres of population: Molini (Alzone) and its extent behind Agosta beach, Bisina, Monti-Rossu and the hamlets of Buselga, Beddi Vaddi, San giorghju a Masina, and the ruined hamlet of U Pianu located upstream of Monti rossu under the Cozzanicciu and Tassiccia mountains over 1,000m high. There is hiking on Mare a Mare Centre which crosses the commune to join the col Saint-Georges and continues in the Taravo heights until it reaches the famous GR 20.

The commune has several access points. From the N193 highway inland the D55 road goes south through the commune joining the D302 on the south-western border. From the D55 the D2 links to the village of Albitreccia. The D2 continues south to meet the D102 at the southern border. The D102 crosses the eastern side of the commune but does not pass through any villages. In the west of the commune the D302 comes south from Fica passing through the hamlet of Bisinao before continuing to Cognocoli-Monticchi. The D255 also links with the D302 from the south. In the east access is via the D55 which follows the length of the coast.[1]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 [1] Archived 2016-03-06 at the Wayback Machine., the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
