I reached there with a bicycle from Alghero and I think it was about 3,50 € to pay the entrance fee. You can walk around the filed and see some holes in the groud which used to be graves chambers some thousand years ago. Beside that there is not much else to do, neither in the near surroundings, because there... More

This was a combined visit of prehistoric necropolis of Anghelu Ruju and then Nuraghe Palmavera - the admission ticket lets you visit both sites (I think it is valid for a week, but we visited it the same day). My 9 year old was very impressed and it is amazing how much she learnt from the visit to both sites... More

Our children (ages 7 and 5) absolutely loved our visit to Anghelu Ruju and the burial chambers - and we adults did as well. We visited during shoulder season, so the grounds were a little unkempt, but our children enjoyed climbing down into the tombs and exploring. Our admission included a visit to the Nuraghe di Palmavera, which I wholeheartedly... More

We saw a sign so Anghelu Ruju not knowing what it was turned off the coast road and drove the 6 k up the mountain through fantastic scenery. The day was perfect, we arrived at the site and we were warmly greeted. Were shown a short video in English, and had a coffee in their small café. We were the... More

You can climb down into most of the tombs. It would be useful to take a torch as there are chambers which are in pitch darkness. I can imagine children would enjoy clambering around the ruins chasing the lizards. Very hot here even at the end of September. Doesn't take long to wander round. You can buy a combined ticket...

To see the underground complex of burial chambers is great and again, when we arrived were the only couple there (around 2.30pm) this was probably due to the seering heat and only mad Irish people would make the effort LOL The sheer amount of the underground chambers and their construction is amazing and has to be seen. You can buy... More

Neolithic tombs for those who like that sort of thing. Great, especially when you go at a quiet time and have a chance to look round in peace. Look out for the usual odd Sardinian opening hours though.

We took the tandem to this place which was a beautiful cycle in a beautiful Country. On the road to Porta Torres and an easy to miss sign - this place is just off the main road. Alot of old ruins which are very interesting to look at. No gift shop and can't buy anything nearby - so make sure... More
