Filitosa, Corsica

2.0
#11 of 18 in Historic Sites in Corsica
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.

    Nice little walk on a very friendly site. The remains are very interesting to see and the explanations provided by the terminals are very clear. However we were little it is true. The old olive tree of 1200 years is to see. Walk about two hours without hurrying. Very nice so.

    After the site of Cauria we did by chance and since the time that we come to Corsica and we were talking about Filitosa, we made a detour to this very short visit which has really disappointed us. As I said my backpacker, "readers who know Carnac are unlikely to fall over backwards of wonder" and they really are right! In the end, we preferred Cauria (see my notice filed a few days ago) as the entrance is free and therefore free. Not all this business round (shops, brewery...).

    Good home. Interesting site. We enjoyed the feedback terminals and the small museum. . There are signs or a comment for 5 statues terminal because it is difficult to see.
