Cala della Torre is just one among the many beautiful small bays you can find along the portion of rocky coast of the Cap Corse between the small villages of Barcaggio and Macinaggio. Really a good place for relaxing, swimming, snorkelling - nice seabed rich of fishes - and have some great time. .The reason of the name is quite obvious as Cala della Torre simply means Tower's Bay, from the old Genovese guard tower that dominates the coast from the top of a ridge. .At the end of an afternoon spent here relaxing, nature decided to put on stage a very fine show. In fact, while the sun was slowly setting behind me, a massive front was fastly approaching the coast from the east. Finally, a magnificent double rainbow appeared, just like the ice on an already perfectly cooked and garnished cake. I took several pictures of the scene, the best resulting in this one with a long exposure that has allowed a remarkable motion blur on the clouds behind the rainbow.
