It was really an exciting experience to visit Su Nuraxi! The ruins of this ancient village are the largest on the island and it was once the nerve center of Sardinia. At the center, there’s a bastion with four corner towers and there are dwellings from the Bronze and Iron Ages in the surrounding area. The courtyard of the main bastion has a historic well that still has water in it. There is no door to the central courtyard; rather you have to go through the narrow corridors between the structure’s huge stone blocks. The archaeological site was discovered and excavated entirely in the 1950’s and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997. It’s located between Cagliari and Oristano, in the Medio Campidano province, and is in really excellent condition. You can’t visit Sardinia without seeing a Nuraghe, and while it’s true that there are thousands, few are as well-preserved or of such dimensions. Don’t miss it!
