The history of the port
Thanks to the strategic position, which allows control over the Bocche di Bonifacio, the bay was inhabited already 6,500 years ago. Greek merchants, Roman soldiers and, for a long time, pirates of the Mediterranean were installed.
In 833, Bonifacio II of Tuscany, who gave the country its name, built a village to protect against the raids of the Saracens. It remained so under the Maritime Republic of Pisa for two centuries before passing under the Republic of Genoa.
The influence left by the Ligurian can be found in the bonifacino, dialect still spoken, corresponding to the most archaic variety of the Ligurian language. Finally, in 1768, with the Treaty of Versailles, Bonifacio was ceded from Genoa to France, and Napoleon in 1793 assumed command for several months.
