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.

  • The old city is just beautiful. Do not hesitate to do everything on foot. The streets, the walls of the Citadel, etc. The view from the old city on the sea, the cliffs, the sunset is gorgeous...

  • It is a nice port with many antique shops on the way trekking and is really beautiful with nice shops and people good food..  more »
  • A place with narrow streets and white stone, well care, with terraces and restaurants, with slopes and downhill, which arguably is the most characteristic of Bonifacio.
