Cap corse


Here is the first post-processed picture from Corsica. I took it during our first day, when we went hiking on the far end of the Cap Corse.


The Cap Corse is a 40km long peninsula located at the Northern tip of the island. It’s the pointing finger of Corsica. La Sierra, a mountain chain, lies inside the finger, giving it a beautiful hilly look.

All around the Cap Corse are buildt Genoese Towers, that are the heritage of the Genoese occupation of Corsica from 1347 to 1729. These Towers were erected at the request of communities to protect villages against the pirates. They spread all around Corsica, with one third concentrated around Cap Corse.


Here is a photography of the Finocchariola Island with its collapsing Genoese Tower.
