Tour d'Omigna, Cargese

(5/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Put on your trekking shoes and hike to Tour d'Omigna to be rewarded with scenic views of the coastline. Genoese people built the tower at the beginning of the 17th century as part of a coastal fortification system, which was supposed to ward 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, which features 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.

  • If you like running at dawn in the month of August so do not hesitate: very nice course where you do come across only a few other riders slightly hilly Carfree. Nice views all the way, including from the top of the tower. Provide water. 8 km AR.
