Filitosa, Corsica

(1.9/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • What can be seen is interesting, but the problem is that there is little to do! A few impressive stones and olive trees of a thousand years. Very low price, about 7 euros. Not sure whether a must on your list of Corsican.
