Bonifacio, a city on Corsica's southern coast, appears to hang dramatically over soaring limestone sea cliffs along the Strait of Bonifacio. Its massive citadel and ramparts can be seen for miles; the historic Église St.-Dominique towers over the western end of town. The centuries-old Escalier du Roi d’Aragon, a staircase carved into the cliffs, leads down to a narrow harbor.
