Drive down here after visiting Su Nuraxi. Interesting museum exhibits from the main site and unearthed ruins of another Nuraghe. Multi-language interactive screens about the exhibits and sites available.

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.

This museum housed more nuragic ruins as well as some of the artifacts that were typical of the era. The National Archaeological Museum in Cagliari had more items, and had prepared us well for Casa Zapata, but the latter was still worth a visit.
