Corsica, an island inhabited since prehistoric times
In 1972, archeologists found in a cave, near the Bonifacio port, the skeleton of a 35 years old woman who lived 7,000 years before our era. Baptized 'Lady Bonifacio', she is a testimony of human presence on the island since prehistoric times. The origin of the citadel is dated 828 A.D.
