Just an incredible site, ancient and mysterious. You get to walk around with a guide, who gives a good historical background of the site and other pertinent information. It's very tight going into the structure and not for the claustrophobic. Really fascinating.

Hung around for the guided tour. So glad I did. So much information to absorb. Bit of a workout but so worth it. This is the grand daddy of nuraghe complexes. If you're going to see lint one, this is it.

Amazing look at civilisation's accomplishments two thousand years ago. Impressive, good guide, our group was small and the site wasn't too crowded. Great appreciation of the talents and efforts of our ancestors, much still unknown about this iron age site. Some steep steps and close spaces.

So worth a visit. I will not repeat all the praises written by other reviewers, but if you don't have a lot of time, this - and the Archeological Museum in Cagliari - should be the place to see if you want to learn about nuraghic culture. Our guide, Simone, was friendly and knowledgeable. Her explanations made our experience great... More

This is a wonderfully preserved Bronze Age village and central tower. A guide or guide book is needed to really appreciate its building and evolution across more than 1000 years of habitation. But simply walking through the remains of the village gives you a good picture of how they lived. That walk is easy even for someone with mobility problems.... More

After climbing a flight of stairs you see the rooms within. You better not be claustrophobic if you wish to enjoy this site. The passages are narrow and several stone steps are narrow and steep. One does have to be in good physical shape to visit the whole complex.
