Filitosa, Corsica
(1.9/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Filitosa is a megalithic site from the end of the Neolithic era and the beginning of the Bronze Age until around Roman times. Arrowheads and pottery date back to the earliest inhabitants of 3300 BCE. The 2-3 m (6-10 ft) menhirs (standing stones) date back to 1500 BCE and are carved with the likeliness of human faces, armor, and weapons. A trek through an ancient olive grove brings you to a rock overhang with a surrounding wall. There you'll see the central monument with hut platforms, and further down the trail, you'll reach the Western Monument or torri. Downhill from there, you can see the five megaliths circling a 2,000-year-old olive tree.

  • The site of Filitosa is approached down a track through an ancient olive grove. The first monument to be seen is a rock overhang and surrounding wall. Then the visitor comes upon the central monument....  more »
  • Nice tour in the nature in the middle of Corsica. Provide protection from the Sun, water and a hat for sunny. The site is well done, with a sort of audio-guide. Kids will love climbing, running and jumping around! A bit expensive for our taste, but very friendly and informative

  • A warm welcome and a good walk of one hour minimum, which makes us discover the prehistory. The site is well laid out with paths and terminals giving oral explanations in several languages (of your choice).
