Full description
Discover the nuraghe of Sardinia on a 4-hour tour of the Su Nuraxi di Barumini, the best example of a unique defence system that represented an exceptional response to political and social conditions, and an innovative use of the materials and techniques available to a prehistoric island. Recognized by UNESCO for its historical significance, the site provides a great introduction to the origins of Sardinian culture. During the tour, you will explore the vast megalithic bulk deep inside many tholos of incomparable beauty. Explore the massive central tower, built from large dressed stones without the use of mortar. Consisting of 3 chambers, one upon the other, they are connected by a spiral staircase. Learn about the construction of this remarkable site, including the massive stone curtain wall that linked 4 subsidiary towers. Time permitting, it will also be possible to enjoy a typical Sardinian lunch in one of the nearby restaurants. Alternatively, bring a picnic to enjoy in the Giara of Gesturi, where the small wild horses of Sardinia run free.

Excellent hal-day trip to learn about ancient history of Sardegna

The tour was very well organized, and we enjoyed it very much. We were able to hear about brief overview and history about Sardegna on the way to Su Nuraxi , which gave us a good view of the land we're travelling. At the site, we were amazed by the complexity structure of the Nuraghe, as well as the level of civilization. It was certainly impressive, and the guidance given by the guide helped us to understand the background of the history as well.

One of the highlights of our trip, our guide Valeria was fantastic.

The drive to the ancient site of these cone shaped constructions of the Nuragic settlement through the undulating country side was amazing. Valeria shared her knowledge of archaeology and the love for her country and people with generous enthusiasm. It was truly awesome climbing into the the tower's ground level cave. Inside the Tholos we experienced for a contemplative moment a sense of eternity. We feel very privileged to have visited this site. Seeing the miniature horses of the Giara region was a bonus. Our visit the next day to the National Archaeological Museum at Cagliari where we could view the finds of the Nuragic civilisations' jewellery, tools, pottery, statuettes and weaving exhibits further deepened our learning experience of this truly wonderful visit.
