Saint Bartolomeo cliff

The country of Chiessi is along the section of Costa del Sole, some kilometer after the tourist suburb of Pomonte if we come from Marina di Campo, from which country is distant approximately 20 minutes by car.

Arrived to Chiessi, park the machine in the public square of the church or in the parking which is under the road on the left. 
In front of to the church leaves a granite staircase with the indication of the path N°3 of CAI, which in approximately 45 minutes of walk it makes us reach the spectacular cliff. 

Massif of Saint Bartolomeo is divided in two levels not very evident from the bottom. The first level is reachable from the deviation on the path, which is also indicated by a road, and it has
ways of more pitches, while higher level offers mainly one pitch. 

For who wants to scramble up on this cliff are necessary at least 12 quickdrawns, a rope of 60 meters and is recommended the use of the helmet.

There is also a short path that gives the possibility to go up on the peak from which it’s possible control the coast and the country of Chiessi with a spectacular sight on Corsica and the
island of Pianosa.
