Filitosa, Corsica

1.8
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. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Olmeto holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Filitosa and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Very nice site, well maintained and history with a capital H is palpable. Along the route there are free terminals that explain what we see that is very interesting. Half circuit the reward "a millennial olivier" magic! a very beautiful scenery, take a camera!

  • A visit nice enough, but a little expensive. The Museum is ridiculous, there is a cafeteria. Friendly welcome

  • We found this quite expensive prehistoric Site for what (€7 adult, €4 the guide booklet that is useless because everything is written). Not crazy and fast enough to do. The staff is very friendly, the site can be visited in 3/4 d time 1 hour.

  • Quiet place near the prehistoric site of Filitosa. A dozen of small well appointed villas. The owner is very welcoming.
