Photographer's Note

The small town of Rogliano, in the northernmost part of Corsica, appears here between the rocks and arbutus trees. Te more noticeable characteristic of this small town is the presence two superb baroque churches (that can be seen on the picture) and of numerous small castles known as "american's houses". These house have in fact been built by corsican people who emigrated to USA during the first part of the 20th century and came back after making a lot of money.

La petite ville de Rogliano apparait ici entre les rochers et les arbousiers du maquis. Cette petite ville du nord du Cap Corse est caract廨is嶪 par ses deux magnfiques eglises baroques (que l'on voit sur la photo) et par la pr廥ence de nombreux manoirs cossus connus sous le nom de "maisons d'am廨icains". Ces propri彋廥 on en fait 彋 construites par des Corses qui ont 幦igr aux USA pendant la premi鋨e partie du 20e siecle et qui sont revenu chez eux apres avoir fait fortune...
