Bonifacio, fortified city, is anchored on limestone based, real isthmus sea
Not open to Bonifacio, one surrenders to it. Unconsciously, the visitor back in time and finds himself wandering like a tightrope walker on the ramparts millennia full of history: Weaving of narrow streets, squares and neighborhoods of verticality of ancient palazzi invite a discovery as a dilettante, clocked by the prospects that such mirages aspire to the lower city and its navy or leads to the cliff tops.
The urban morphology of the city was designed by the building and the superposition of three fortifications: the Pisan fortifications, medieval fortifications, known as "sponge" and the French fortification which constitutes the current defensive.
The fortress-houses with facades built above the narrow vacuum witnesses remain alive for the very first function of the city: the military function.
