About
The complex of Santa Vittoria is one of the most important Nuragic sanctuaries in Sardinia. It is located in the territory of Serri, precisely in the highest part of the Giara di Serri, a basalt plateau 650 metres above sea level. The site served as a meeting place for membres of different nuragic communities. The meetings were peaceful and in addition to water worship rituals, activities of a commercial nature took place there and agreements were formed among princes. This dual function, religious and civil, is confirmed by the division of sapces into an area for worship, which included a holy well and an open -air temple, and a zone including a large "festival area".Despite undergoing various modifications and renovations, the village-sanctuary continued to be frequented during the Carthaginian period (the end of the 6th century BC-238 BC) and the biginning of roman rule in Sardinia. the characteristics of the border areas were also maintained in the Byzantine period (6th-7th century AD), when a church was built and dedicated to Santa Maria della Vittoria, a name later given to entire area.

Spectacular views, imagination needed.

This is a remote prehistoric site and is a collection of ruins on top of a very high plateau. The views are spectacular! However it requires a good deal of imagination to appreciate the site. That said the ground water fed well (storage tank) is interesting, especially considering its age. The staff are very friendly and helpful, a very basic hand held audio guide is offered. There's a cafe on site serving meals and drinks. Not a place to take children potentially, especially as quite a trek.

Magic place on a beautiful plateau
Really interesting site, and very well kept. The people working at the information desk are extremely kind and efficient. The site is rather extended, it's nice to walk around and visit the different parts. Everything is well explained. The sacred well is unique! (See photo)
