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.

When I see those menhirs I always ask myself how could they bring those gigantic rocks with their primitive tools centuries ago. The place is worth to see. A lot of menhiirs can be seen and there is about an hour of relaxing walk and watching around

This is a place that you have to visit as it's the key neolithic site in Corsica and the menhirs show features unique to the Island at a time when neolithic people were building them all over the western world. Unfortunately, just like Stonehenge, we do not know really why. It is another really beautiful Corsican spot, and the menhirs... More

This is a privately owned prehistoric site. For some reason, the owners think it's a good idea to pipe in music. But, some of the menhirs have interesting carvings, and if you're into prehistoric stuff, it's a must see. There is small museum, but a new, larger one is under construction. Don't bother to see the "dinosaur" - it's just... 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
