This Nuraghe is very impressing. I never thought they would be this big inside. They look so small from the outside. This Nuraghe was the second tallest Building in the World next after the pyramides in Egypt at that time. The construction of the Nuraghe is amazing.

There are over a 100 historical Nuraghe buildings on Sardinia but this site is well worth a visit. This construction is built as an equilateral triangle and upon appearance from the outside does not give up its splendor until you enter its interior. My first thought upon entering the construction was that I was seeing exactly the same construction as... More

I never expected to be so fascinated. One, of course, reads all about the Sardinian nuraghic buildings, but they look rather drab and uninviting - until you enter and suddenly you are in a different world. This particular Nuraghe is supposed to be the 2nd most important one on the island and it lives to its billing. When you arrive,... More

A gem of a nuraghe. It was astounding to walk around, and I found the guide very useful. It was a very hot day, and the cool, dark connecting tunnels were a welcome respite. There is useful written information in a variety of languages as well, and the little drinks bar was welcome. It is an impressive example of nuraghic... More

From the outside the nuraghe does not look very impressive but once inside you get to appreciate the craftmanship of this ancient people. The audio guide helped to get an overview. Great to be allowed to walk/scramble through all of the building and to enjoy the splendid view from the top. The ticket was supposed to give entrance to the... More

This beautiful and impressive Nuraghe is beautifully situated on the great plain. The Nuragh impresses with its stairs, corridors and many rooms on top of each other. The view from the top of the tower reveals other nuraghs nearby. Outside of the central tower lies the surrounding buildings. The houses built by the original inhabitants are round and build into...

First off, let me say that the directions & address on TripAdvisor were (surprisingly) completely incorrect! We spent half the day being misdirected! Also, there are some road signs, but some are very faded, poorly located & easily missed. The correct address is SP21 Strada Provinciale Numero 21, Torralba, between Scalo Di Torralba & SS131, The Nuraghe itself was fantastic...... More

A very interesting example of the Nuragic civilization. Some facilities are available nearby, however improvements are needed both on the hardware (the bar) and the software (written and oral guide)

Visited this on a recent trip to Sardinia. Doesn't look much from the outside but once inside it is amazing. Don't know how they built it. The steps up are quite steep. We visited with a guide who explained its history and it is quite ancient. Has to be seen if you are into ancient monuments. Great views from the... More
