Synopsis

The citadel of Bonifacio, in the south of Corsica, is perched 60 meters above the sea. Constantly under siege throughout its history, the city has had to reinvent constantly its defense system.

Six centuries of titanic work have added multiple layers of fortifications.

This film recounts the construction and superimposition of military works on this Corsican Gibraltar.
