The French author Guy de Maupassant visiting the place in Autumn of 1880 said: 'These pink granite rocks, 300 meters high, strange, tortured, sometimes bent, becoming red with the time, bleeding under the last beams of the sunset fire, take all sorts of shapes as a fairytale group of people petrified by some supernatural power': Maupassant en visitant les calanques en automne 1880 s'étonna devant "ces rochers de granit rose, haut de 300 mètres, étranges, torturés, courbés, rougis par le temps, sanglants sous les derniers feux du crépuscule et prenant toutes les formes comme un peuple fantastique de contes féeriques pétrifiés par quelque pouvoir surnaturel..."; France Corsica Island Calanchas di Piana UNESCO World Heritage.
