  • A great hike that is divided into 2 parts - a walk in the Bush (with several shaded to pause). -"rise" to the Tower allow plenty of water. If the first part is not a problem the second thickens slightly. Nothing insurmountable, but we were quite surprised to see people climbing in a skirt, savate, without bag or water. Short remember that it's still a short hike and not a walk on the beach.

  • A hike has to do very early in the morning because not shaded. Difficult children av to the Genoese Tower. To be well shod and take camera. Views of the Gulf of Porto, the creeks of Piana and cloose beach. Do not do this hike coming in Corsica would be spent beside a marvel.

  • A nice hike where it is vital to provide bottles of water in abundance! The parking lot is located in a corner you can see the Genoese Tower. Plan good shoes. Ideally first thing in the morning where it is less hot because you're not at the end of your efforts. The trail is quite steep, no shade! On average takes 4 hours for this hike. You will be rewarded on arriving at the Summit with a height over 400metres, view it offers spectacular views to take your breath away! You can also visit the Genoese Tower.

  • A magical place with a view overlooking the Gulf of Porto. It takes good hour to go. Hiking is more difficult at the end where we ascend to the Genoese Tower. Allow the water in the summer. Superb ride and a panorama breathtaking.

  • Capu Rossu-second westernmost výběžk of Corsica. We went on a tour of one of the most beautiful Corsican Genoan towers. The ascent to the tower is not long, but quite steep. Views from the tower.

  • An exceptional place. Towards the North, we cross the capo rosso (the Red cap), where the Genoese Turghiu Tower taunts the waves at more than 300 M of height. Cap Rouge ahead its massive granite at the westernmost end of the island. 70% of the Corsican shores are made of rock. Capo Rosso (or Capu man in Corsica language) which means the Cap Rouge, is one of the points most West of Corsica. The capo Rosso is the second westernmost point of Corsica, exceeded only by island Gargalo satellite in the nature reserve of Scandola (and the most Western point of the island of Corsica in the proper sense). A few kilometers only of Piana, this cap is located more than 300 meters of height to provide a unique point of view on the Gulf of Porto, the Gulf of Sagone, but also on the famous creeks of Piana. This site is rated to the heritage of humanity by UNESCO and is dominated by the Tower of Turghio, a charming building built in 1608. The capo Rosso marks the limit of the Gulf of Porto in the South and the termination of the creeks of Piana. The Turghiu tower which rises to 331 meters, built by the Genoese when they occupied the island, is one of the highest of the Corsican coast. The region is known for its famous marine caves. The best-known lies perpendicular to the Tower, 300 m below and is called "the cave to double entry", she treats visitors by the beauty and awe of his bowels.

  • The hike is short but worth beautiful landscape on arrival, it dominates the Gulf of Oporto and Girolata of fantastic colours, attention to take water in the summer, it heats well and there is not on the way
