Overview
More
Filitosa is the Corsican symbol of prehistory. Our ancestors lived there for à least 6000 years before Christ and left the most beautiful concentration of Corsican statue menhirs. The site has Been added to the list of the hundred historical sites of common concern for Mediterranean countries and classified as a historical monument. Famous for the size of its natural environment and the mild weather, Corsica now embodies the cultural richness symbolised by the rare and mysterious beauty of its statuary art, like its distant cousins in Stonehenge, Great Britain and Easter Island, Chile.

We loved this place, not just from the historical perspective but the surrounding area is pleasant to be in. Plenty of info, buy the guidebook. Small museum, some minimal climbing, the stones themselves are fascinating, great knowing they had been carved by human hand 3-4000...More

The site as very nice ancient artefacts. The price of 7 euro is way too much for what is there. 3 or 4 would be ok. Museum is very small and has very little information. Grounds could be better maintained. Visit Cauria instead, it’s free...More

Yes, there are prehistoric stones to be seen. Yet the whole site is overgrown and shabby, really nothing to write home about.More

Filitosa is an institution, a site internationally renowned for its statue-menhirs. I had wanted to see it for years. To my surprise the first part of the site turned out to be the most interesting. The old settlement is still quite rich and it is...More

I am a huge fan of historical sites, and fascinated by megalithic monuments, but I'm afraid this place is badly run and not really worth it. The site has been very poorly curated. It seems the menhirs have actually been moved from original spots, for...More

If you're in the area it's definitely worth the detour. We were driving from Ajaccio to Bonaficio and this only added 20 minutes to the drive and was totally worth it. The site isn't too big but does require some walking to see the whole...More

The megalithic carvings and stones are interesting, but despite the press-and-listen multilingual audio (irritating background music, accented, cumbersome English commentary) and leaflet/map, the site doesn't to a great job bringing its subject to life. We had to check Rough Guide to Corsica to realise menhir...More

Prehistoric settlement with standing stones. Well laid out with English and French audio in places. Great to explore. Admission fee. Small museum and restaurant on site. Off the beaten track. Well signed but road infrastructure is challenging!
