Tucked into the narrowest part of the Golfe de Valinco, the small port of PROPRIANO (Prupria), 8km northwest of Sartène, centres on a fine natural harbour that was exploited by the ancient Greeks, Carthaginians and Romans, but became a prime target for pirate raids in the eighteenth century, when it was largely destroyed. Redeveloped in the 1900s, it now boasts a thriving marina. The town around the port has also grown in importance.
