Well signposted, though not an easy drive up to the site. Entry fee is reasonable and you can buy an English guide for just a few more euros, which is definitely worth it for the map and explanations of the site. You can walk over all the old settlement and get up close to the statues, which makes it fun... More

Communication in English was not possible with the staff at the entrance (not even a single word). Audio recordings in English on the site are very hard to hear. You need to wait for other visitors to listen to the recordings in their chosen language, because audi guide is actually one speaker.

Amazing historical place and very warm welcoming little town and site. I recommend it to people passionate for history and even for the curious ones. I stayed in one of the lodges in the site and it was just a perfect experience.

Visited the site with 2 kids. Very well organized, structured and informative. It was great that explanations on site were also given in languages other than French. Definitely worth a visit.

Easy to visit if you're driving between Bonifacio and Ajaccio, but I doubt there's public transport - a site covering 5,000 years of history, well-presented and in a lovely spot. The central 'fortress' area dominates the valley, including store-rooms and ancient hut circles as well as shelters almost hidden among the trees. The main interest is the upright standing statues...

Stunning menhirs in a bucolic setting, the path meanders through the landscape taking in the menhirs, shame about the piped music.

The place, with its vales and hills, the stranges stones shaped by the time and winds and overall the statues coming from prehistoric times, its very good equipment, with explanations and mysterious music ; make this place very attractive !

We visited Corsica in March 2014 but unfortunately the site was closed for the winter. Returned in October 2015 in the last few days before annual closure. Well worth the effort to see the standing carvings and also the Torre fortification. Little is know (no written records) so everything is subject to interpretation. The site owners are building a new... More

I really enjoyed my visit to Filitosa and thought it comparable to Stonehenge in England but not as busy. The upright standing statues (menhirs) are unique and whilst not as large as those on Easter Island, much more accessible. The unspoilt and untrimmed wildflowers, particularly, the Lax Flowered Orchids, Tubular Dropwort and endemic Corsican and Sardinian Sea Daffodil, to name... More
