Tour d'Omigna, Cargese
Categories: Scenic Drives, Ruins, Outdoor Activities, Tourist Spots
Put on your tracking shoes and hike to Tour d'Omigna and you will be rewarded with scenic views of the coastline. Genovians built the tower at the beginning of the 17th century as part of coastal fortification system, which was supposed to word off pirates coming from North Africa. The tower was listed as a historical monument in 1991 and restored in 2009. Climb up an outer stairway to enter the first floor with a fireplace and sea view windows. A flight of metal steps leads to the observation platform on the roof, which offers panoramic views of the surroundings.

This sheet, very well done, presents the technical part of the ride but also the historical aspect. The Genoese Tower of 1604 is in very good condition and fitted so that we can go up there.
