The citadel of Bonifacio was the first stronghold of Corsica in history. It was built in 830 by the lord of the city on behalf of the Pope. From its narrow plateau above the sea, it was built for coastal surveillance. The citadel of Bonifacio was often rebuilt and enlarged, according to the evolution of military technology.
