Amer remarquable sur le route du Sud.

Ce phare, mis en service en 1864, est situé à deux kilomètres à l'intérieur des terres sur les hauteurs d'Alistro, à 1300 m. Ne signalant aucun danger particulier, il est pourtant un point de repère indispensable entre Solenzara et Bastia, zone plate et lagunaire.
La tour, construite à 50 mètres d'un sémaphore, jouxte un bâtiment abritant deux logements de gardiens .

Son feu à 2 éclats 10s est éclairé par une lampe de 1800 W. Perché à 96 mètres au-dessus du niveau de la mer, il a une portée lumineuse de 23 milles (environ 42 km).

Il est gardé mais ne se visite pas.
