Photographer's Note

This is a hard walk to beat in Corsica.
Capu Rossu (or Capo Rosso) is a spectacular headland jutting out into the tourquise Mediterranean Sea a short distance from the Calanche village of Piana.
It is the most westerly landpoint of the whole island (unless you count the minuscle island just off the Scandola promontory), and spells amazing all-round views.
As might be expected, it is the site of a masterly watchtower dating back to Genovese times, namely 14th-15th century, and now protected under the auspice of UNESCO. It is accessible for visitors -those who still have the energy to ascend it after the arduous climb.
