Bonifacio Citadel, Bonifacio
(4.8/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Bonifacio Citadel and other attractions to your Bonifacio trip itinerary using our Bonifacio trip itinerary maker.

  • We visit much Corsica and so went for a walk on the heights of Bonifacio, it's really very beautiful.

  • Even just Bonifacio is worth the price of the ferry to Corsica. The cliffs are an unforgettable sight.
