Valentine’s Mausoleum in Pino, admirable

Valentine Piccioni (no other than the daughter of Gustave Eiffel), married a Corsican, Camille Piccioni in 1890, they had two children, Marcel and Jean. The Piccioni family, known as one of the oldest and most distinguished families in Corsica.

Now, this is her mausoleum in the town of Pino (Cap Corse), an admirable structure – I have yet to visit it, as I find it holds tremendous beauty and quite frankly, fascinates me – maybe it’s the powerful pressure of atmosphere, it appears to dominate the surroundings, bathing in history and remaining omnipresent, along with a certain settling into the natural surroundings of towering trees and dense bush – this, takes my breath away and I’m certainly looking forward to this visit over the summer, and I would urge you to do likewise if you are around that area at any time. (A follow up will surely be necessary within a few months on this subject, and then I’ll be able to tell you all about Pino too).
