Bonfacio's Upper Town

Recommended
Perched on the rock overlooking the sea, upper Bonifacio is made up of the medieval old town and the citadel. Created in the 19th C, the access road splits at the Roman column. The left incline leads to the old town via a tunnel. The old, narrow streets around the church of Sainte-Marie-Majeure are lined with tall houses linked by strange flying buttresses that are gutters taking rainwater into the water tanks.
