Ile Rousse (Isola Rossa) is a port town on Corsica island, part of France's Haute-Corse department. This small town has population around 3,000.
Ile Rousse was established in 1758 in order to be created a seaport that wouldn't be in the hands of Genoese like Calvi. Until 1848, the Italian was Corsica's administrative language. The town was named Isola Rossa (Red Island) due to the ochre colour of its rocky islet serving as natural harbor. Along with Saint-Florent, Ile Rousse is one of only a pair of towns in the departement to have a French name. The others kept their Italian names.
Corsica is an island in the Mediterranean Sea. It is located west of Italian Peninsula, southeast of mainland France, and north of Sardinia island (Italy). Mountains make up 2/3 of the island, forming a single chain.
The quays of Ile Rousse commercial port are built on 3 of the 6 small islands. Bridges link the harbor complex with the coast, the market, the fishing port, the fortifications.
