    This Bronze Age un-mortared stone tower and village had been covered in earth until it was discovered and excavated in the 1950s. It's now one of the best examples of of ancient Nuraghic architecture. The tower is 3 stories tall and made from rock. To tour the site you must go with a guide. Call ahead to arrange an English-speaking tour. The site is a maze of stone rooms, some built for storing food, some for sleeping. The Nuraghic people were small by contemporary US standards, so it's fun to duck through the stone doorways and tunnels and try to imagine how it all looked eons ago.
