This site was recommended and as it is the original UNESCO site in Sardinia we thought it was a 'must see'. What a disappointment. The cost an exorbitant €10. The guide only spoke Italian and was unhelpfull with our attempts to understand her. We had been to another site with no guide, but received an information sheet to self guide.... More

One of the best preserved 'nuraghi' in Sardinia. There are only guided tours and you the guide tell you a lot about the history and about the construction. Well worth a visit.

I have recently been at Hotel Su Nuraxi for two days. Great location, very close to the nuragic village of Barumini, and comfortable room with a spectacular view of the countryside and the Castle's ruins. In addition, I could taste an excellent menu with some specialties of Sardinian cuisine. Seriously advised!!

One of the things that have to be on your to do list for Sardinia. It is a UNESCO world heritage site for a reason. You get to hear the history of the place which is very fascinating and if you have questions the staff is more than happy to answer them. It was quite busy when we went there... More

The tour was mainly in Italian, but the guide tried his best to help us understand . Not his fault we don't speak his language. The site is large and well preserved. Enjoyed a couple hours there.

We went to Su Nuraxi Barumini as part of a shore excursion. This is a UNESCO world site. It was raining at the time so the rock were very slippery, and we could not go into the tower area. However the tour guide did discuss the site and showed us the formations that were bronze age and pointed out the... More

Worth our time in Sardinia.The architecture speaks of unexpected sophistication of the bronze age period 3500 years old. Though there is no written or published literature of this site, the stones themselves speak of the remarkable architectural knowledge and life-skills of the Nuraghi people. Our guide Dirk fro secrets of sardinia was knowledgeable to make it an interesting visit.The climb... More

A must see if you wang to understand the nurage culture - should be at least as famous than the Stonehenge. After visiting Barumini and having the guide's information, you will understand all the other nurages in Sardinia. Kind people we met there and a fantastic culture to be familiar with.
