This is a stunning site to visit: with one of the most intact Nuraghi on the island. You can walk around, through, and even climb into one tower. They are presently doing excavations, so you can see history in the making.

The Nuraghe is the house the Sardinian people used to build a few thousand years ago. It is a must to see at least one of them. Naturally, you can see Nuraghi ( the plural of Nuraghe ) all over the island but this site...More

It was beautiful experience to walk through the ruins this big Nuraghe. It situated in the middle of nowhere (but very close to Orroli) and the only sounds around us came from the nature. It is really worth to visit it.

Beautifully located in the countryside just a handful of kilometers from Orroli... a must see for its beauty, history and great atmosphere. There's an entrance fee of € 4 per person and guided tours on request.

This type of Nuraghe( megalithic towers typical for Sardinia, built between 1500-900 BC) is called a pentilobate because the main building had 5 towers around the central tower. This is the most complex type of Nuraghi. The nuraghe is called 'Arrubiu' since the color of...More
