The gateway to the southwest coast of Corsica, Figari’s convenient location between the incredible citadel of Bonifacio and the picturesque town of Propiano, combined with its own unique atmosphere and history, explains its appeal as a tourist destination.
With its direct air links to the mainland, Figari is a perfect base from which to explore the magnificence of Bonifacio. Perched on cliffs 70 metres above the sea, the ancient citadel dominates the surrounding countryside and affords stunning views of the azure Mediterranean and Italian island of Sardinia. Take the spectacular scenic route to the Pertusato Lighthouse, witness breathtaking panoramas at Pointe de Sperone, and cool down with a refreshing swim at Plage de Piantarella. Alternatively, cruise the coastal waters of Bouches de Bonifacio and discover the tranquil islands of the Archipel des Lavezzi.
Back in Figari, sample more sites of historical interest. The town’s 12th century fort of L’Eglise San Giovanni Battista is one of the highlights, while the unique La Chapelle San Quilico is a rare example of Roman architecture. Spend a sunny afternoon combing the ruins of Eglise San Andrea, which offer glimpses of the town’s ancient past.
Opportunities for recreational activities abound nearby. Lovers of marine sports can select various places along the coastline to indulge in snorkeling, scuba diving, cruising, as well as swimming. Outdoor enthusiasts should head to the picturesque Baracci and Rizzanese River valleys just inland from Propiano, with their lofty mountains, hot springs, deep ravines and rock pools.
