Nuraghi stone structures unique to Sardinia. Discovered in 1950 it is an impressive sight. Descending to the bottom of the central section could be difficult for older people.

This ancient village and fortress is the first place I tell people about when they ask me about my trip to Italy. 3500 year-old tribute to human ingenuity.

The site is well maintained and preserved and you walk through with a knowledgable guide that tells you the history that is known. (There are parts that they don't know because there is no proof and only speculation for answers)
