During this excursion we will discover the “Domus de Janas” of the necropolis of Montessu and the Sacred Well of Tatinu in the southern- west area of sardinia called “Sulcis”.
The word "Domus de Janas" refers to the ancient legends that tells of mysterious fairies of small stature who would inhabit these places. We know that the Domus de Janas that are built all over Sardinia (over 2400) are tombs carved into the rock by the people who lived on the island since the Neolithic age. Many of these appear as little more than a hole in the wall, although some harbor wonderful graffiti carvings while others are large and complex.
The tour continues with the visit of Temple of Tatinu, dating back to the late Bronze Age where the worshipping of water took place.
The temple, which immediately impresses the visitor with its grandeur, was dug around a spring and it was a place of pilgrimage.
