A proximité de Barcaggio, sur la commune de Rogliano, se trouve la tour génoise d'"Agnellu", bâtie sur le promontoire du Capo Agnello, à l'extrémité NE de la péninsule du cap corse.

Avec l'île de la Giraglia, la pointe d'Agnello marque l'extrémité N de la Corse.Au sud de la Pointe d'Agnello il est possible d'aller assez prés de la petite plage de galets, dans le creux où la montagne retient les vents.

Derrière ce même cap, il y a une petite échancrure qui est très agréable, très bien protégée de SW-W. Elle n'est pas grande, il y a 4m de profondeur en son milieu.
