The Tower of  Diana (Tour de Diane)  is an ancient Genoese tower located in the commune of Aléria on the east coast of Corsica Island.

It is situated at the entrance of the pond of Diane which is famous for its production of oysters.

 

The Tower was built by the republic of Genoa at around 1582 to prevent attacks from Barbary pirates who were coming from all around the mediterranean area.

 

The tower was guarded by two soldiers who were based in fort Matra in Aleria.
