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.

It's incredible to see, it is a sense of walking through history. Go early to beat the heat and bring walking shoes and some snacks so you can picnic during the visit.

Well maintained pre-historical location. Great views and surprisingly good conserved menhirs and dolmen. Visitor centre was under construction. Enough (so not too much) information.

Very nice, quite not too big area with stuff dated back 6000 years ago. Because it was so quite, we could start imagining the area, back in those days. Although its hard to make a realistic image of it. It reminded me of the Shire from LOTR. The statues are very nice, and the surrounding is welcoming. Nice creek, green... More

I normally like this kind of thing but found it hard to understand due to lack in understanding of French. Not sure I thought it was worth the €7 entrance fee.

Worth a visit - some very interesting stones. Visited it in May - off-season and therefore no crowds.

Filotosa is out of the way between Bonifacio and Ajaccio on Corsica. It is a prehistoric site embodying 8000 years of history. If pre-historic settlements are your thing, then this will give you a thrill. There are a number of peoples that lived here and all left their marks, primarily wonderful stone monuments, but also stone huts and other works.... More

So wild, very unique prehistorical site. Gorgeous site in the middle of the Corsican country site...Don't forget to touch the 1000 yrs old olive tree... Simply beautiful.
