If you are interested in history, then you must not miss a visit to the most important prehistoric monument in Corsica, the megalithic archaeological site of Filitosa, located just a few kilometres from the resort of Propriano.

According to archaeological findings, the site is believed to have been inhabited since around 6000 BC, i.e. since the Middle Stone Age. The last known settlement of Filitosa took place under the Romans around the 4th century AD.

Stone menhirs

The main attraction is the several dozen 2-3 metre high granite menhirs, columns with carved faces and armour, which form the main part of the archaeological park. The menhirs probably date from around 1500 BC.

But there are many other excavations and a small museum in the area. Filitosa is a beautiful open-air site, with several trails leading through it with information boards.

Entrance fees and opening hours

The outdoor area is open daily from 9:00 am, closing always 1 hour before sunset.

The ticket price is 9 eur, Youth under 17 pay 7 eur.
