Good site for families with children

I must admit, I didn't realize there was a site with so many menhirs in Corsica. It is better than some for those with children in tow. We had a two year old who was able to... read more

Just the setting is wonderful and a beautiful walk with fabulous panorama's. The distribution of the menhirs is fantastic. Try to visit in the middle of the day when the sun will hit the surface of the pink and grey granites stones revealing the carvings even better. There are stone shelters and weathered rocks that leave your imagination to explore... More

So worth a visit, even if it is off your main path! This beautiful, serene park of ancient standing stones artfully dispersed throughout a Shire-like setting will transport you to an era when the world was greener and life was simpler. For both the non-history buff and the keen archaeologist in your group. Worth every twist and turn in the... More

I must admit, I didn't realize there was a site with so many menhirs in Corsica. It is better than some for those with children in tow. We had a two year old who was able to walk then be carried on shoulders without fear of tripping on rocks. The menhirs themselves are upright with clearly visible carving. The large... More

You'll know what a menhir is after leaving, if you didn't know already. Very much worth the visit, this prehistoric site shows what's been uncovered and learned about our stone-age predecessors. English guide book is available. Be sure to bring water during the hot weather and/or go early in the morning.

Interesting monuments, site a bit off track, not full of tourists like in Egypt, Greece or in other historical sites. Visitor path well laid out, it's ancient so it's difficult to imagine how the "village" looked like, but the few standing stones are well preserved and the site is worth visiting. The guide booklet is informative. Hat and sun screen... More

This is definitely the most publicized of the several prehistoric site in south Corsica, but not my favourite. The menhirs with sculptured faces are impressive, but the atmosphere is a bit aseptic and artificial, despite the info points playing sweet music between one explanation and the other. Bring a hat and some water, most of the paths are exposed to... More

This place is awesome. The number of megaliths, some even taller than 2 meters. It is estimate that the youngest are only from 2000 BC while the oldest can be several millennia older. Expect to climb a few stony steps as you inspect the megaliths and monuments

Well worth a visit with a excellent audio guide around the site explaining the different area. The site is well set out with a very nice little café to refresh yourself after the visit

An amazing view into the of pehistoric lives on Corsica. Numerous examples of ancient stone carvings and ruins of pottery, tools and jewelry. It is amazing to ponder the life style of these people and think about our history. Will anything survive for another thousand years, let alone 5,000? An interesting stop while in southern Corsica.

Good half day trip learning about the ancient Corsican civilisations - better than expected. Buy a guide book for a decent level of detail - fairly inexpensive.
