Pre historic site, in the countryside, with different kind of stones that make it a unique legacy of the first Corsica inhabitants. It has ruins of a stone village, and 2 different places of cult, one with 5 lined up vertical stones under an olive trees and one with dozens of stones in a circle some with carved with faces....

This is a fairly large site and there is some scrambling over rocks and rocky paths, so good footwear is recommended. The entrance fee is 7€ and the guide book 4€. As you walk around the site there are a number of pre-recorded pieces of information that are obtained by pressing the button relating to your language. They are well... More

We went there on a cloudy and rainy day. We had the place almost to ourselves which felt pretty special. I actually didn't expect it to be that big.

Great stop off after the beach at Cupabia, open till sunset. You only need hour or so. Really brings into focus how they lived. Rough paths, climbing and reasonable walking distances, so decent footwear and some ability are needed to explore these ancient monuments. But well worth the effort, really worth the trip. Cafes and shops nearby.

This is an essential visit with good car park, its own restaurant/cafe, and - unusually for France - outstanding postcards. The site itself is very atmospheric and beautiful.

It is a set of stones and menhirs placed so you can more or less see as was the area. The wooded setting gives charm. Entry 7 € (+ written guide € 4). In a few places you have an explanatory audio. In one hour you have seen everything. I recommend seeing the remains at sunset. There are a little... More

The overall site is bigger than I anticipated, taking perhaps 45 minutes to walk round with a minimum of time at each stopping point. The recorded description at each point was interesting, but did detract from atmosphere of site. The actual menhirs are spread out, so you do need to walk to see them all. Site is not wheelchair friendly.... More

The site was much bigger than I had thought it would be and all the better for it. Really stunning and you could feel the weight of the millennia. The stones themselves are extraordinary - the same era as Stonehenge but with faces carved on them. However, for me, the natural stones and rocks were even more amazing and wonderful... More

Situated around an hour away from Propriano, the site of Filitosa is really worth the visit. The site consists of numerous menhirs (4000BC) all ranging in size with beautiful features and you really get a feel of the neolithic community that lived there. The site takes around an hour and a half to wander around and appreciate but may not... More

A well laid out site which in May was not crowded. However being a tourist attraction and seeing the size of the booking/restaurant and shop area it is safe to assume that it gets crowded in the summer months.
