We went for what was spposedly a three hour walk, but was in fact only two (although we admittedly stopped for lunch, and the climbing took a bit of time as well - to be explained in a minute!)
So we did the walk called 'La Trou de la Bombe' (it had a Corsican name but I have apparently already forgotten it!) Which involved a fairly easy walk with a rather large hole in the mountain at the end! Its about 8m in diameter, and to get to it, you have to do a bit of nifty footwork, combined with the help of a rope somebody has put there to help pull yourself up when needed (a lot of people got half way and turned around, not me.
So yes, it wasn't quite as long as we'd expected/hoped, but it was still nice. Oh, and if you plan on climbing up, I recommend hiking boots!
On our way back we passed through Filingosa - kinda like a Stonehenge, although actually completely different! It was interesting, we paid 5€ to go in, we wandered round, listened to the commentary box things they had and understood nothing of it (it was in 5 languages and we didn't understand it in French or English. It was all archaeological gibberish!) but it was nice to say we'd been and we'd seen some prehistoric rocks from the bronze age!
