Visible from the Territorial Road 20, starting from the small rest area and its picnic benches, the Vivario Fort or Pasciola redoubt was erected in 1771, commissioned by Count de Vaux, two years after the Battle of Ponte Novu. It was intended to monitor passage routes amid a context of rebellion and insurrection by Pasquale Paoli's troops - I Naziunali - and also to secure the region from convoy attacks.

Constructed atop a rocky outcrop that overlooks the Vecchio Valley at an altitude of 780 meters, the Pasciola Fort, much like the Vizzavona Fort built a year later, provided accommodations for soldiers within fortified buildings.

Accessible via drawbridge, the Pasciola Fort was spread across three levels and could house between 50 and 100 men. The basement contained a 90 cubic meter cistern for water storage, while other compartments were allocated for food storage, including a bread oven. The fort also had a powder magazine capable of holding 80 barrels, a cartridge magazine, as well as an artillery platform.

In a State of Ruin for Nearly 200 Years

The Pasciola Fort has been classified as a Historic Monument since 1977. The structure has been in a state of ruin since at least the mid-19th century, as reported by the Engineering Captain in 1849. For safety reasons, it is prohibited to approach the building.

Easy to Access in Less Than 30 Minutes

Vecchio River

Adjacent to the T20, a parking lot and a rest area will allow you to picnic on one of the wooden tables and benches. A trash bin is also provided for disposing of your waste.

This small path, frequented all year round and especially in summer, is appreciated for its great accessibility. It leads to a historic monument and offers a fantastic viewpoint of the valley carved by the Vecchio, visible to the southwest of the Fort. The Fumaccie tunnel that connects Ajaccio to Bastia is also visible.

The path is perfectly clear and can be accessed in 25 minutes.
