Torra d'Omigna, Cargese

Follow well-carved walking paths over rugged terrain to get to the ruined, 17th century Genoese tower of Torra d'Omigna. Sitting on a rocky cliff overlooking the sea, the tower was built in 1605 as part of a series of defenses built by the Republic of Genoa to protect the island of Corsica against Barbary pirates. The tower was declared a national monument in 1991 and was restored in 2009 so that visitors could once again climb to the rooftop terrace and take in the panoramic views. It's an easy coastal hike to the tower, but the trek requires adequate walking shoes, and you'll want to take plenty of water. Torra d'Omigna is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Cargese Edition.

  • On a cloudy afternoon, a nice walk in the scrub, with beautiful views of the sea on a well-marked path. The tower is very well restored, nice panorama

  • From Peru beach a superb walk of 2 hours and a half including 20 minutes on site. Easy balcony path and well plotted really for all (well not for strollers ...) Awesome scenery all the way. Discovery of the scrub really pleasant. The tower has been rehabilitated and appears "untouched" Several variants are possible especially towards the chiuni beach. COME on, let's go!
