The name or the text book description may mislead you. True that this is an historical site showing some ruins of old houses however reality can't be more different than that. Walking thru the remains of the Nuraghe village. Staring at the enormous walls. Following the tour guide's explanations about the sophisticated structure and solutions created thousands of years ago.... More

It is not easy to get a UNESCO World Heritage listing, so we were prepared to see something special at Su Nuraxi. We were not disappointed. Visitors are required to go on a guided tour. This is a win/win situation because the policy protects the site and not only gives the visitors information, but also the opportunity to ask questions.... More

Unesco site. You have to visit with a guided tour, which I recommend anyway to better understand the place and the history. Beautiful location, not many tourists around. Book your room in advance if you want to spend the night because there is not much around. Don't miss to visit Casa Zapata (one ticket covers both).

On a recent cruise of the Med, who would have thought that this somewhat hidden gem would be the best in the 'historical category' of all the ports we visited. The word 'awesome' is totally overused, but it is the only word to describe this. It has been perfectly described elsewhere in the reviews but it is not to be... More

One of the few scientifically explored nuraghes of Sardinia. (Of which they have about 7000!) It is a huge labyrinth of stone structures which might have been either the residence of the leaders of the society about 3500 years ago or could have possibly been serving as a religious edifice. No one knows it precisely. The entire "blue-print" aimed to... More
