Fierce and proud, Bonifacio is perched on a granite cliff and overhangs the sea. Welcoming inhabitants since the prehistoric era, the city has become strategic due to its geographical position, on a strait. It was developed by Tuscans to be a citadel and was named after Boniface II of Tuscany in 828. The citadel was held to fight against the Moors of Spain, who were pirates. Fight scene of the Pisan and Genoese armies, Bonifacio was disputed between these two powerful states. It briefly became an Aragonian property but was definitively acquired by Genoa after a series of treasons and sieges.
