Bonifacio Citadel, Bonifacio

#1 of 32 in Historic Sites in Corse-du-Sud
Must see · Historic Site · Landmark
Built in the 9th century, Bonifacio Citadel is located on a sandstone promontory overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Today, it is more like a museum or a mini village packed with sun-bleached ramshackle houses. Walk the narrow passages to view artisans forging knives and carving wooden goods, and jewelers offering fashions made with the remarkably deep red coral indigenous to the area. Many restaurants, shops, and cafés line the walkways with outdoor seating areas overlooking the Mediterranean. Stroll the maze of alleyways with decorations and designs that go back to medieval times complete with a historical marine cemetery. Put Bonifacio Citadel on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Bonifacio trip planner.
