Bonifacio Citadel, Bonifacio

4.7
#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Corse-du-Sud
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.

    Bonifacio is a beautiful city! There are a lot of people with both armoured and very expensive parking. The Citadel and the old bonifacio are splendid and charming. A life breathtaking! The port is full of beautiful yachts :) and authentic We saw the fireworks from the cliffs, it was very beautiful

    We arrived at 9:30 and spent the morning (until 13:30 - €12.) Day: €19). We parked on the P1 car park next to the departure of the train to be able to convey the Grand Parents to the top. Possibility to park in the pkg in the upper town near the military Center. We borrowed the climb up to the Citadel for the younger, visited the beautiful marine cemetery then did a tour of 1 h 30 (€ 5 for-12) with a very nice guide. Even the kids enjoyed. Tour done by all, some market and rise. Ice cream at Rocca Serra (€2,40 the ball-€4 2), try lemon organic mint, Delish! Everything was top! We could also have lunch and have a swim, but we had no time

    A must-see when coming in Corsica. It must be 1 day to enjoy all the places to visit in addition to the maze of alleys. Special mention: the Bastion of the banner is a great visit for the family.
