These are some of the best and largest rock-cut collective tombs in Sardinia, and date back at least 4500 years. There is a cemetery of them, and you can go inside and see the chambers, and, in at least 3 cases, see the bulls head...More

Dear visitor, thanks for spending time reviewing us. Our team is very glad to read your comment. Just a tiny note: unfortunately there is no bar/care at the necropolis, we hope to open one as soon as possible, but we are very proud to confirm...More

Visit at the end of the day - the site is open until 7pm (or at least it was when we visited in August) - when the sun is setting. The end of day light adds a magical quality to this fascinating site. You need...More

The tombs are fascinating and well-worth seeing. Wear clothes you can get dirty, if you really want to explore the interiors. A good flashlight will help to distinguish some of the artwork. For a thorough investigation, take along a description of the excavations -- the...More

This burial site is a ticket package with Nuraghe di Palmaceta 12 km away. So these subterranean burial vaults are not much to look at until remembering the tombs and passageways were dug from limestone and sandstone 5200-6500 years ago. The site is well marked,...More

This is a series of graves believed to date from around 3000BC. They were discovered in the early 1900's and were further excavated and investigated during subsequent years. Any artefacts discovered have long since been removed to museums, so what is left is a series...More

The necropolis has only been open to tourists in recent years. You cannot argue with its significance when you know of its age and the information it relays of thousands of years ago. The people for example must have been very small. Again it is...More

The prehistoric necropolis contains over 30 graves similar to Domus de Janas and artificial rock cut chambers. The necropolis is situated near the airport of Alghero and near the Sella & Mosca winery, which is an additional reason to come in this region.

You have to walk around the site, everything is underground. Artificial caves used for graves, most not very deep. From a distance it only seems a flat field. We found it interesting, but we are interested in archeology

A lot more could be made of this site. In typical Italian fashion, the majority of the information on the tombs is written in very technical language, and does not give a vivid picture of what the site was like

I love ancient history, but this was sadly lacking. You're basically just looking at a few holes in the ground. You're asked not to climb down for a further look so you were left reading an info board and looking at a diagram of the...More
