Valinco region

Campomoro and its Genoese Tower http://www.mairie-belvederecampomoro.fr/

The seascape and beautiful trail lead to the most impressive Genoese Tower. The Tower of Campomoro was built in the 16th century by the Genoese, and is one of the biggest towers in Corsica (15 meters high). Its originality is in the fortification of a wall built beneath the stars. Restored in 1986, it is part of the Littoral Conservatory. On the first floor, there is a permanent exhibition that retraces the history of all the Genoese Towers in Corsica and the invasion of the barbarians.
