Well, behind the door we were waiting for a cobbled path running over a beautiful meadow. After a few meters we find a huge menhir called Filitosa V. It is the most impressive of the site and, as in each of the monuments of the place, we will find an audio that offers an exhaustive explanation of the piece in different languages.

As a tourist and with limited knowledge of prehistoric art, what I liked most about the place is the surroundings. Filitosa was the capital of Corsica 8,000 years ago and extends into a green and wide landscape. There are small hills that offer a beautiful harmony to the land, a proliferation of olive trees and oaks, wide meadows planted with spring flowers and the cattle continue grazing on the meadow without realizing the historical importance of the place where they live.

In this scenario there is a paved and dirt road where we go through different prehistoric monuments that testify to the Neolithic legacy in Corsica. All are well lit and with an audio system that offers more information to the visitor.

We will find dolmens, ancient settlements and menhirs whose disconcerting silhouette seems to tell us that since prehistory man has not changed much in his way of thinking and priority of thinking - you just have to take a look at photograph number 2 of the gallery exposed below- .
