The construction of the tower was begun in 1609. It was one of a series of coastal defences built by the Republic of Genoa between 1530 and 1620 to stem the attacks by Barbary pirates. In 1994 the tower was listed as one of the official historical monuments of France.
The Conservatoire du littoral, a French government agency responsible for the protection of outstanding natural areas on the coast, has purchased 503 hectares (1,240 acres) of the Punta di u Capicciolu headland and the adjacent coastline.
