Ile Rousse

France - Corsica

West of Cap Corse at Ile-Rousse, one of these towers guards the island of Pietra, the largest of the string of islands of red porphyry rock that give the town its name.

The memory of Pascal Paoli, father of the Corsican nation, hovers over the large eponymous square where endless games of pétanque are played under the plane trees.
