Le Bastion de l’Étendard de Bonifacio

The emblem of Bonifacio, it rises majestically at the entrance to the port, bearing witness to its thousand-year-old history. Built in the thirteenth century and rebuilt in the sixteenth, this architectural landmark offers a breathtaking panorama of the surrounding cliffs.

In the depths of the underground chambers, a memorial illustrates key moments in the city's history, such as the meeting with Charles V or the tragic sinking of La Sémillante. While this is an attractive experience for young people, it also offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the cliffs.
Visit the Bastion de l'Étendard, Monday to Friday from 9am to 7pm (last entrance at 6.30pm) and at weekends from 10am to 6pm (last entrance at 5.30pm).

Not to be missed by families: for children aged 7 to 12 (you'll need to be able to read), ask at the entrance for the free illustrated game booklet and follow Fanfan the flying donkey! And for the little ones, don't panic, they can also play with medieval helmets.
