Description

Algajola was a position Genoese advanced in front of Calvi. The 1st houses correspond to the sites prehistoric and protohistoric of Tepina-Cocani and to the site of Mount St. Joseph.

The site is very picturesque but you must anchor at a distance and without any protection.

Algajola (ou Algaghjola) fut longtemps une position Génoise avancée devant Calvi. Les 1ers habitats correspondent aux sites préhistoriques et protohistoriques de Tepina-Cocani et au site du mont Saint Joseph.

Le site est très pittoresque mais il faut mouiller à distance et sans guère de protection.
