Well presented nuraghi which was discovered under another building. Good layout to the sight and a photogenic small church nearby. Worth visiting on trip to or from Su Nuraghi. Nuraghi is undercover so good for inclement weather day.

An interesting place to see, adding some information and context to the famous Su Nuraxi. Also, beautifully arranged exposition of the nuraghe laying directly underneath the Zapata palace. Our guide, Marcela, was very knowledgeable.
