BONIFACIOS (French pronunciation: Bunifazziu [buni?fat?sju]; Ligurian: Bunifazziu) is a municipality on the south tip of the Isle of Corsica, in the département of Corse-du-Sud in France. Bonifaciens, female bonifaciennes, are its people. It is the biggest municipality in Corsica. The scene of Guy de Maupassant's brief Vendetta is Bonifacio.

This is the stage of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in Bonifacio. Weapons in the Bonifacio Castle. Bonifacio's south-facing coastline is a spur of chalky whitestone, steeply sloping and shaped into unconventional seas. A little further inside, the lime stone borders on the Granit, of which the two Isles of Sardinia and Corsica consist.

Bonifacio harbour is located on the bay of Bonifacio, a submerged gorge with a fjord-like look, divided from the coast by a finger-like headland 1,500 metres long and 200 metres high. The gorge was part of a gorge that led to the highlands of Corsica in pre-historic periods, when the level of the seas was still low and the island was united.

It has a max. draft of 3.5 metres, more than sufficient for old and small boats. Bonifacio is divided into two parts. Vieille ville (Old Town), or la Haute Ville (Upper Town), on the site of a fortress, is situated on the foothills with a view of the Mediterranean Sea.

This fortress was erected in the ninth c. with the founding of the town. Since it was erected, the fortress has been rebuilt and restored several time and was most recently an administration centre of the French Foreign Legion. From a historical point of view, most of the Haute Viville residents have been under the immediate shelter of the fortress.

Underneath, the harbour complexes and housing areas, la navy, line the small shelves of the entrance and stretch up the river for a certain length of time, giving the estate a straightforward look and a third section of housing bounded by St. Julien to the south. It and its strongholds also stretch a certain length along the cliffs, which are at an altitude of about 70 metres (230 feet).

Out of the ocean, the phenomenon is of a blank town shimmering in the light of the day and floating above the rugged rock. Bonifacio Cittadella. There are two important prehistorical places in Bonifacio: the old Araguina-Sennola hut near the town of Capello on the N96 route just outside the town and a chamber grave of Vasculacciu further south at Figari.

One is the site of the remarkable lady of Bonifacio, a woman's funeral from 6570 B.C., which is either Mesolithic or Early Neolithic, and the second is from the megalithic culture and dates from the Middle Neolithic. Their orientation and the widespread use of hornstone from Monte Arci in Sardinia show that the bay of Bonifacio was a path to the interior of Corsica from the very beginning.

Ptolemy was the geographical photographer who made the only mention of southern Corsica in Rome. He[ 4] reports the co-ordinates of Marianum Promontory and the city, which on a single chart turn out to be the furthest southern of Corsica. According to the list of the people of the eastern coastline, he notes that the Subasani (ancient Greek Soubasanoi) were "further south".

" Humans no longer appear and the city and foothills have not been unidentified, nor do the streets of Rome indicate this. Antonine Route says that the only formal street, Via Corsica, ran between the Rome Catra of Mariana and Aleria on the eastern shore and further southwards to Pallas.

Ptolemy clearly places Pallas on the eastern shore just off Marianum. Though it is possible to travel to the extreme southernmost regions, it is unlikely that they would have transported significant amounts of Rome's transport. However, maritime transport through the straits was important and could hardly neglect the beautiful port of Bonifacio.

Therefore, the most favoured option for Marianum Promontory is Cape Pertusato, the most southern point of the Isle of Corsica, about 9 kilometres easterly of the harbour, with Bonifacio itself as Marianum City. A second option would be the ancient ruin from the first AD, which borders on the Piantarella coast near the city of Ciappili and next to the Sperone course, a resort to the western side of Bonifacio, but these remains seem to constitute a romantic mansion and the sea is of little value as a harbour.

Probably the mansion was owned by a Bonifacio resident as Marianum. Today's town was established in 828 by Boniface II of Tuscany as a fort and bears his name. The most of the fort dates from the ninth or is of unknown date, but Il Torrione, a round spire, was certainly part of the pristine totress.

There are flights from Antwerp International Airports to the city (car or cab required) and the boat to Sardinia is available several days. In Bonifacio the following personalities were born: Tommaso Maria Zigliara (1833-1893), Holy Roman Emperor, divine and philosophical. The Wikimedia Commons has Bonifacio coverage. "Bonifacio. Com"
