Crowned all around the coast of Corsica, Genoese towers were fortresses that once served to prevent the arrival of enemy fleets. Positioned on the different points of the island of beauty, these imposing buildings now offer exceptional views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Corsican shores. The Genoese tower pictured here is the tip of Capo Rosso, overlooking the coves of Piana, on the west bank of the island.
