Less impressive than others in the area but free to access and an easy, accessible walk in beautiful scenery. Leaves lots to the imagination. The road leading to is very windy and not in good condition so takes longer than expected. Park on the road...More

The megaliths and sites were much smaller than I had expected. Nevertheless, it was a nice hike little through a beautiful scenery. I arrived there at around 10am, when it wasn't very hot yet.

Enjoyed the short walk (300 metres, from the parking area, if I remember correctly) in lovely countryside to the Standing Stones; Two Menhirs which were used for astronomical purposes and the chambered Dolmen used for ceremonial or healing use. The scenery was breathtaking. It is...More

The megaliths are very interesting but the walk and the setting did it for me. Wow, a beautiful place!

There is just one long road near Sartene to get to Cauria (even though it's closer to Bonifacio, you can't get there from there). And then a long walk. But it was all quite pleasant and interesting and interesting to imagine life there in prehistoric...More

Wow, these walking around 'live' museums were full of surprises and interesting tidbits. Go on a day that is not too hot.

Loved the walking path mostly for the beautiful scenery. I felt very serene there. Do bring water, especially if you are not used to walking. The monuments are marked and well preserved. A touch of mystery that veils their origin adds to the charm. One...More

Great circular walk and free of charge to see the standing stones at Cauria, great setting in the Corsican maquis.
