Based on the recommendation from our B&B in Alghero, we elected to visit the nuraghe Santu Antine instead of the larger, but less well preserved site of Barumini. The advantage of Santu Antine is that you (and your child) can better imagine how living in one of these could have been. Okay, there are only walls left, but in Santu... More

If visiting Sardinia you ought to see this nuraghe as it is such a good example. I recommend going with a guide in order to understand the significance of these structures.

We visited this Nuraghe while on a day trip to two other places. it is in the middle of nowhere although there is a café across the road. It is still impressive and you can go inside the tunnels. if you went on your own I am not sure how you would find out the history but our Guide was... More

visited here as part of an excursion taking in several other sites over a days excursion. in a valley, almost in the middle of nowhere, with only a small café across the road, that also acts as ticket office, are these ruins. I've always fancied myself as a bit of a history buff and in my travels have seen an... More

The best nuraghe we visited. Very impressive structure. When you pay they tell you about an app to download (free wifi) which is your audio guide. There's not a huge amount to see but what's there is good. Structure is quite intact, you climb to the top. Wear sturdy shoes! The cafe at the entrance is good and cheap too.

Very well preserved nuraghe on the plains near Torralba consisting of 3 towers amazingly intact. There are tunnels to walk through and stairways to climb - is very good. There was no signposting, no information - bring your own. Not sure if you are supposed to get a guided tour here or not - we bought our tickets (6 Euro... More

We had never heard of a nuraghe and stopped as we were driving past. This one is amazing, you can stand inside a structure that was put up 4000 years ago.. It was ancient when the Romans used it.. The stones are massive and would take a lot of shifting, even with modern tools.. It make Stonehenge look very basic... More

We explored this Nuraghe on our own (had to pay €6 of course), the audio guide was broken in English apparently. It was nice to see this part of Sardinian history, however some more info about the people from that time and also better translation into English of the available info would greatly improve the experience.

Though this particular nuraghe is a long way from the normal tourist sites, it is definitely worth the drive! The Nuraghe still have two vaults intact in the main tower and a beautiful panoramic platform from the floor of the third (missing) dome, and a very impressive surrounding structure/stronghold with large archways.
