Although pricey, this is an excellent tour with a wealth of information about Nuraghe. I’s one of the most preserved ones, along with an entire village beneath. Highly recommended.

Stands stately alone on the hillside touting its lineage as Sardinia’s largest, most important Nuraghic complex. The archeological remains are incredibly well preserved and only discovered in 1949 when heavy rains revealed stoneworks under what was thought to be just another hillock. The central tower...More

You pay a 12€ entrance fee for a guided tour. There is no other way to enter - you can not go inside without a guide. Transport is your concern, we rented a car. Enjoy!
