The arrondissement of Corte was created as part of the department Golo in 1800. Between 1811 and 1976 it was an arrondissement of the department Corse, since 1976 it has been an arrondissement of the department Haute-Corse.[3] On 1 January 2010, it gained the four cantons of Alto-di-Casaconi, Fiumalto-d'Ampugnani, Campoloro-di-Moriani and Vescovato from the arrondissement of Bastia.[3][4]
