A few years ago, the municipality of Muratu established a tourist route named "Stone and Water History," marked by signs that traverse the entire village from Saint-Michel to the heights of the village. The starting point was logically chosen to be near the much-visited Church of Saint-Michel, from which you will ascend the Bevinco Valley.

Starting from the Church of Saint-Michel

The departure (or arrival, depending on your direction) is situated behind the Church of Saint-Michel. A dirt space allows for easy parking.

Ideal for a Family Outing

The trail is suitable for everyone and for all ages, including for a family stroll with children. With minimal elevation and the possibility of altering your route, you can conveniently increase or decrease your path according to your preferences.

River and Forest

The trail descends towards the Bevinco River, where you will appreciate the natural pools and also encounter a Pagliaghju. As you ascend the valley and the sound of water fades away, you will pass through a preserved oak forest—a Corsican exception, as most forests consist of other types of wood.

After 1 km of walking, you will reach the D305 departmental road at the end of the path, where a small house is located. You will need to climb up to reach the lower part of the village (U Suttanu).

Fountains, Washhouses, and Genoese Bridges

Murato Washhouse - 09/06/2012

Water sources form the backbone of the territory, which has harmoniously integrated them through its stone-built fountains and washhouses with slate roofs. You will also discover ancient bread ovens and the old Corsican mint.

The shortened route allows you to traverse the village through its alleys, then head towards the Ponte a teghja river, before retracing your steps through a different path, revealing other parts of the village, including the ruined Saint Roch chapel, the Church of Saint Jean, and local shops.

For a more comprehensive hike, a more complete route invites you to discover the rich heritage of the village through its numerous Churches and Chapels, starting with Saint-Michel, Saint Jean, the Annunciation, Saint Roch, and even Chjesa Negra, which is actually situated much further away in the Piève commune.
