A travel through the Sardinian prehistory, discovering the fascinant nuragic civilation, the fairy's houses and giants' tombs.

 

In the first part of our guided visit we can admire the domus de Janas "S'Incantu" (in sardinian language means "magic") in the area of Putifigari, in northern west Sardinia, one of the most beautiful of the whole island.

The Domus de Janas, also known as the "fairy's houses" are monuments built there around 5000 years ago, linked to the mysterious cult that dug the rock to build eternal houses for their dead.

 

The Domus de Janas "S'Incantu" is also called the "painted tomb" and it is considered the queen of the domus de Janas because of its beauty and symmetry: its interior is cararcterised by a double sloping roof dug in rock, with majestic columns and many symbols carved in trachyte, symbols associated with a prehistoric cult.

 

The second part of this day tour is dedicated to the tomb of the giants "Sa Pedra Longa" (big stone), to get there, it takes about 3.5 km by car and a walk of 300 mt.

An impressive monument, with its central stone that is 3.40 m and 2.40 wide, which gives the surrounding area a "sacred atmosphere".

 

Finally we will  visit the Nuragic village "Santa Cadrina", a nuraghe located in the center of the city of Uri.

The archaeological complex includes a three-lobed nuraghe, its village with two wells and some walls erected in Roman times.
 
The Nuraghi are majestic sites built by Nuragics who began to densify the territory of Sardinia by raising to the sky about 10,000 towers (nuraghi in fact), megalithic buildings truncated conical whose exact function is not yet known.
