The Tower of Capu di Muru is a Genoese tower located in the commune of Coti-Chiavari on the west coast of the Corsica. The tower sits at an elevation of 100m on the Capu di Muru headland.
The tower was built in around 1600. It was one of a series of coastal defences constructed by the Republic of Genoa between 1530 and 1620 to stem the attacks by Barbary pirates. In 1994 the tower was listed as one of the official historical monuments of France.
The tower is owned and maintained by the Collectivité Territoriale de Corse in an agreement with the French government agency, the Conservatoire du littoral. The agency plans to purchase 215ha of the headland and as of 2017 had acquired 212ha.

  • Very nice visit and some spectacular views on sunny day. But the top of the fort was closed - only for special hours and groups! Not good in this peak of the saeson!

  • Beautiful hike...but of medium difficulty and not easy as published in several Corsican guides, with very physical passages...don't forget the water...under the sun it's quite long and often in full sun! Very badly marked this route deserves to be properly marked ... and with some signs on the local vegetation it would be great! !!
  • Magnificent place, 3 hours if you do the tower and chapel loop.
