The Genoese Tower

Corsica has many towers along its coastline, built under the domination of Genoa, between the 13th and 18th century. These towers were used to protect the island from invaders arriving by sea. As soon as a boat was seen from one of the towers, a fire was lit. The smoke then alerted the next tower which lit a fire in turn to warn his neighbor. And so on.

The towers are today more or less well preserved. Some are visited while others are admired from the outside.

It is very rare to be able to sleep there. The tower of Turghja (or Torgia) dating from the 16th century is therefore both unusual and exceptional! Renovated with care over the years by its owners, it invites you on a journey through the history of the island of beauty.
