En 1594, une tour littorale fut construite au point culminant du plus grand îlot. Elle était destinée à la défense du Cap corse sous l'occupation génoise et est aujourd'hui en état de ruine.

Autrefois rattachées à la Corse, les îles Finocchiarola ou Finacchiarola (en corse Finuchjarola) forment un archipel inhabité de la mer Tyrrhénienne. Elles se trouvent toutes proches de la côte nord-est du Cap corse, sur la commune Rogliano, entre la baie de Tamarone (au sud) et celle de Santa Maria (au nord), et sont constituées de trois îlots désertiques entourés de rochers :
  • A Terra, le plus proche de la côte (200 m) ;
  • Mezzana, l'îlot central ;
  • Finocchiarola, le plus grand, le plus haut et le plus au large des îlots (500 m) ; il culmine à 27 m au niveau de la tour ruinée.

Les deux îlots les plus au larges sont la propriété du Conservatoire du littoral aujourd'hui, et le troisième entre dans sa zone d'intervention.

La passe entre la dernière île et la terre, est barrée par une grosse épave, d'une centaine de mètres, bateau naufragé dont émergent seulement quelques tôles. Seule les petits bateaux peuvent passer "à vue", par beau temps, dans ces dédales.
