Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fascinating collection of museums and gardens telling the history of Corsica. Can spent a couple of hours there, well worth the price. Received a super friendly welcome from a guide who had studied in Wales!

The location is beautiful and the landscaping of the "parc" is very well done. Plenty of interesting and exotic plants. Modern architecture mostly in wood, that melts nicely in its surrounding.
Very pleasant to walk in but unfortunately all this nice outdoor is forbidden to dogs. The exhibitions are interesting but the lectures less. There are some children workshops but they seem to be merely there to keep the children occupied. I've never discovered anything or seen anything new by going to the parc, and being a dog owner I would rather go for a walk somewhere my animal can come too, especially as it is not possible to go there without a car being in the middle of nowhere. You really must want to go there.

Some interesting exhibitions about local Corsican history and traditions surrounded by nice plantations with some impressive cacti. An interesting art exhibition when we visited too, as well as a mosaic workshop for the children. Well worth a visit.

We spent a full day at Parc Galea last Sunday. It’s worth investing time both for parents with kids. It’s not only about plants and cactus but also an ethnological journey through Corsica.
The Parc Galea organises Sunday afternoon workshops for the kids so that you can enjoy the rest of the exhibition or even participate.
Do not forget the very interesting conferences hold on a regular basis. Food for thought:-)

Fellow travelers,

This is a must see. However, although I master several world languages, my French Is poor. Since everything is written in French a translation program (or book) is required in case you do not master the native language.

I am not a particular treehugger but the gardens are beautiful! Really a piece of art!

Apart from the cactus gardens it contains several small museums and one lovely exposition of an artist, who’s name I forgot.

At the end of the tour, there is an interactive/ obstacle trail which is fun for all ages.

My teenage children loved it as well!

We went on a hot July day, two kids (ages 9&5) and it really was a lovely visit. We have family connections to Corsica so there is was a lot to learn! It was hot and would have been nice if there was water available or for sale someplace, as we quickly drank what we brought. Otherwise the hands-on children's activity was very interesting, (my kids speak french but I noticed the lady leading the activity spoke a little English) and the cactus garden was very beautiful. I'm not sure we would skip a day at the beach for this, but we had to catch our return ferry that afternoon so it was a perfect way to spend the day. I would go back again, as we didn't get to take the sensory walk (without shoes!).

A must visit if travelling down the east coast of Corsica. A great way to quickly assimilate much of the rich Corsican history in an interactive fashion which is well organised for adults and also for a range of childrens' ages. Really well put together with a very friendly multi-lingual guide on the front desk.

We visited it a number of times during our recent visit to Corsica and our daughter (3yo) absolutely loved it.

Please make this a must see when you are in Corsica. It will be worth the journey if it is not close to you.

When I visited they did not have any maps of the attraction but the lady took her time to explain everything on offer.

The gardens are beautiful although they have only been open since 2012 so it needs to mature. That aside, it is a stunning location. They have a wide variety of Cacti.

One great experience they have is a nature area of about 600 metres. You have to walk in bare feet; shoes are strictly not allowed. You start by stepping onto pieces of flat slate then you come to the various areas that you step onto such as straw, pebbles, charcoal (it is cold), pine cones, etc. It is a wonderful experience. Please be aware if you have delicate feet then please do not enter. Also, we went in August so consider the time of day you will experience this and the time of year as it can get really hot on the ground quickly as there is no shade. We went round at around 10.30 am and it was perfect. When you have completed the course there is a shower where you can clean your feet. At the end of the day my feet felt wonderful, it is as though they had been massaged.

It really is a must during your visit here. It is suitable for both children and adults.

They have museums, prehistoric man, life on Corsica which are fascinating but please be aware that for the time being all information in the museums is offered in French only. There are no audio systems to listen to so if your French is not very good you will struggle to understand. They are working on being able to offer the information in other languages at some point.

The whole site is so tranquil and calming that it is a great place to relax. The suggested time of visit was between 90 minutes and 3 hours but we were there for 5 and half hours.

There is cafeteria there but when we visited on a Saturday in August the cafeteria was closed. We are not sure if it was a one off.

Parking is easy.

This botanic park and museum is not listed in most "what to see" websites and catalogs. We discovered it accidentally, by following road signs. Most impressive part is garden. There are hundreds of cactus and succulents as well as some other plants.

Entrance fee is 8€ (children half the price). Open from 10am to 7pm at high season.
GPS location of park is 42°25'59.95"N, 9°31'33.97"E (2 km to the North from Folelli or ~30 km from Bastia).

I recommend this place when visiting southern Corsica.
