This is a bike ride that allows you to see the very wild environment of Boziu, a micro-regioncovered with maquis where the old villages cling to the mountain sides.

A number of these villages were built upon the rock in order to survey access to the village and to protect the residences.

A long time ago this was a country of livestock farming; many herds still live out inthe open on the high pastures.

After a fun and easy climb to reach the high-villages, the circuit goes from village to villagetowering over the valleys.
