Filitosa is a megalithic site with several Menhirs resembling men with armour and weapons. Quite a large site with some slight gradients, ancient olive tree and dinosaur rock?! There a few audio points in several languages - press for info. Car park could get full...More

We had a fantastic visit at this prehistoric site, museum and cafe. The visit around the site generally takes an hour but we took our time, read the guide book and listened to the audio points. You don't need to buy the guide (€4) but...More

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

Dear visitor, We thank you for taking the time to share your opinion. The purpose of the Prehistoric site of Filitosa is to preserve the menhirs as well as the surrounding nature. However, we do regular maintenance so that the path is always praticable for...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
