Nurage di Palmavera .It was a pleasent very short visit.It cost 3.50 euro.You better take a audio guide so at least you can learn a little bit about them.Because without it is a little bit boring.

The entire family (two adults, two children ages 7 and 5) loved exploring Nuraghe di Palmavera. It's very impressive, and worth the price of admission (particularly when purchased with the Anghelu Ruju ticket). Great way for the kids to burn off some energy.

What is a Nuraghe? As we came to Sardinia, we had no clue. But our visit to the Nuraghe di Plamavera gave us a good, impressive insight in this fascinating culture and lots of information. For a very low entrance fee you can visit the Nuraghe and enjoy some weather-seasoned information, which is, although looking old, still very informative, good to read and interesting, with lots of paintings and reconstructive pictures. Especially the information and pictures make the visit so enjoyable, because you can interpret and understand the ruins you see as signs of a very modern civilization. The best about this site is that you can walk not only around the Nuraghes, but really into them, sit down on 3000 year old stone benches and climb or walk around the old streets of the Nuraghe-Village, so that it's a very real and direct contact with history.

The archaeological site is in a very good condition, you can recognize lots of buildings and structure with the help of the signs and pictures. Also you can see that the archaeological work is still in progress, as we saw some digging sites etc.

The Staff was very friendly, the toilets were clean and the entrance fee is low (about 2 - 3 €), so it is definitly worth a visit. But it is not a very large site, so the visting time shouldn't be too long and by bus it is quite a ride from Alghero, so you should decide if it is worth your time to go there, but you can make it more efficient:
We made our visit into a daytrip to the Capo Caccia area by bus. At first we visited the Grotta, then went with the bus back to the Hotel dei Pini (ask the driver) and walked to the Nuraghe and at last walked back to the Lazaretto Beach, were we refreshed ourselves in the sea, after our cultural and historical experiences of the day! In the evening we went back to Alghero, and we can recommend a daytrip like this by bus very much!

On our way back from Capo Caccia we passed this site, turned round and went back to investigate. It was fascinating, we had become interested in these ancient people two days before when we visited a site high up in the mountains! If you are interested in history and ancient peoples do visit this sight. The lady in charge was helpful and friendly, even though we had arrived almost at closing time! You do need flat shoes to visit any of the Nuraghe sights.

Stopped off the bus...well run - there is an audio guide for rent - and can put on speaker so can be shared - really helped to understand a little of what we were looking at..obscure culture..in the milennium BC. Small cafe and loo on site - useful!
