Description

Marine de Nonza is an open bay surrounded by a wide stony beach dominated by Nonza village in the south.
Tower Nonza is a square building, built of stone and slate. This remarkable tower is 167 meters on a cliff (called "Monte") overlooking the sea and the village, on the west coast of Cap Corse.
Unlike other coastal towers it is not "genoese" because it was built in 1757 on orders from Paoli to suveiller the entry of the Gulf of St Florent.

La marine de Nonza est une baie ouverte, bordée d'une plage de galets noirs dominée par le village du même nom au S.
 
 La tour de Nonza est un édifice carré, construit en pierre et en schiste. Cette tour remarquable s'élève à 167 m sur une falaise (nommée "Monte") qui domine la mer et le village, sur la côte occidentale du Cap Corse. 
Contrairement aux autres tours littorales cette dernière n'est pas "génoise" car elle fut construite en 1757 sur ordre de Paoli afin de suveiller l'entrée du golfe de St Florent.
