L'Ile-Rousse main data and map

L'Île-Rousse is a commune in the Haute-Corse department of France on the island of Corsica.

It was founded in 1758 by Pasquale Paoli to create a port that would not be in the hands of the Genoese like Calvi. As Italian was until 1848 the administrative language of Corsica, the town was originally named Isola Rossa (Red Island) from the ochre colour of a rocky islet that served as a natural harbour.

Along with Saint-Florent, it is one of only two communes in the département to have a French name all the others have kept their Italian names despite the repeated demands of Corsican nationalists.
