Good example

This is a good example of the Nuraghe, although it is not the best on the island. Some walls and towers are left, so you get a good impression of how it was.

This archeological site is the remains of a township begun over 3000 years ago. It is in a remarkable state of preservation and reminded me of Scara Brae in Orkney for its ability to convey how sophisticated people were that far back. It lies just beside the road to the Lazaretto and Bombarde beaches, with a cycle track going most... More

While going from Algehroto Capo CacciaI stopped there to see this 3500 yer old nuraghic village. Nothings really outstanding, at least for me. But If you have time stop there. To go around you need just 20 minutes. The entrance fee 3,5€, audio tour available. Maybe it would be a worth to put some info boards as the site lacks... More

This was the first nuraghe complex we visited and I have to say now in retrospect it is not the most impressive. It is interesting however with good information available on site and a helpful lady at the ticket desk who speaks good English. It gives you a good image of how nuraghe villages were and if you only stay... More

a nice example of nuraghe town, with a centrale "caste" a very unique "reunion house". It worth a visit, it's located 5 minutes away from Bombarde beach and easily reacheable by bike from Alghero.

On a recent family holiday, my family and I rented bikes and cycled from Alghero old town to the Nuraghe di Palmavera ruins. It was around 10k one way, but well worth the ride (there are plenty of cycle paths, the last 900 meters are on the main road however..). Around 3/4 euro entry and you can browse at your... More

These remains of the old Nuraghi culture on Sardinia are very interesting. A relatively big building which used to have a dome roof, surrounded by (the remains of) smaller dwellings of the same round type.

Stop here on your way to Capo Caccia, it is on your way. A quick and easy Nuraghi site with one main centre. You will enjoy other Nuraghi sites more after seeing this one.

This site is on the road between Alghero and Capo Caccia. A lot of people seem to stop, take photos over the fence, and keep on their way. If you have 30 - 60 minutes to take your time, and pay your €4, it is well worth the time to have a good look. The information boards explain the site... More
