Owner description: While Sardinia doesn't lack Nuraghi to visit, the Nuraghi Majori is extra special because it would certainly appeal to couples with young children. There's a small entrance fee. Brochures are supplied in multiple languages. Visitors are given a large flashlight in order to see the interior. It doesn't take long to visit the two-story stone structure. The view up top is a great photo op. Children will adore the fact that there are bats in the largest room. While it's discouraged to shine the flashlight on them, it's a great way to see these cute, tiny creatures in the wild (and to get a whiff of bat guano).There's a small, cute gift shop and clean mens and ladies toilets. The road to this nuraghi isn't paved (potholes galore) but it's not far from the main mountain road of Tempio Pausania.

“Worth a quick visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

This was the only Nuraghi we managed to visit so we were really pleased to fit it in.
There is a large car park on the road ,but it is a 10 min walk from there. We parked in the next door bar and had a drink .
The lady at the Nuraghi is lovely with perfect English and very welcoming. The toilet is the cleanest I have ever used .
The Nuraghi was interesting and you got a torch to visit the enclosed cell which is home to a colony of lesser horseshoe bats. We didn't want to disturb them but couldn't resist a few seconds viewing which was incredible and a wildlife highlight.

“The bats are amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Very impressive structures. Bigger than other similar ones we'd seen in other parts of Sardina. But the highlight for me was the colony of around 50 horseshoe bats that live there.

“Pleasant little attraction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Fairly easy to find and a nice stop-off on a tour of the area. Interesting to see the bats in the nuraghi with the torch provided. Had lunch at the cafe too, which was enjoyable.

“a lovely site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Fascinating site with a quirky cafe nearby. We particularly liked being given a torch so we could look at the bats roosting in the Nuraghi
