THE TOWER OF OMIGNA
It was part of the land known as the Four Towers and was built by the people of Paomia, Revinda and Salona, who had taken refuge in Renno, in order to protect the cultivable land on the coast from the barbarian pirates. It is a twelve-metre high round tower built on a rocky base (restored in 2009, visitors can climb up to the roof terrace to admire the view)
On its steep and jagged north coast, the 40-50 metre high granite cliffs with horse-tooth felsdpaths plunge into the blue waters. They form a striking contrast with the blond beaches, all round, which occupy the bottom of the neighbouring gulfs, Peru to the south, Chiuni to the north.
Numerous passerines enjoy the bushes of the maquis, the coastal cliffs shelter the nests of rock species, peregrine falcons, pigeons... At the foot of the cliffs, underwater, the giant limpet, which has become so rare, finds a place to blossom
From Peru beach, to the south of the site, a signposted path runs along the old dry stone walls, passing by a beautiful house, its bread oven and the aghja, and enables you to walk around the point and reach the Genoese tower. It takes 3 hours to walk to the beach of Chiuni, passing two small fountains to the north. A variant allows you to complete the walk and return to your starting point
