Create an itinerary including Filitosa
Filitosa is a megalithic site from the end of the Neolithic era and the beginning of the Bronze Age until around Roman times. Arrowheads and pottery date back to the earliest inhabitants of 3300 BCE. The 2-3 m (6-10 ft) menhirs (standing stones) date back to 1500 BCE and are carved with the likeliness of human faces, armor, and weapons. A trek through an ancient olive grove brings you to a rock overhang with a surrounding wall. There you'll see the central monument with hut platforms, and further down the trail, you'll reach the Western Monument or torri. Downhill from there, you can see the five megaliths circling a 2,000-year-old olive tree. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Sollacaro holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Filitosa and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Don't miss this!! I sadly arrived too late to see the museum but the site itself was still well worth the entrance fee. Thoroughly recommend, especially if you are interested in history.

  • If you like prehistoric sites this is great. Following in the footsteps of people who were there thousands of years ago is magical.
