First things first - you can get a entry bundle valid for a week for up to twelve or so monuments in the Arzachena area.
The actual site features one inacessible tower and the usual layout of ground floor rooms and courtyards. the whole structure appears to be from locally sourced reddish stone. the site has a walkaround wooden walkway arguably accesible to strollers and wheelchairs. Several infopanels along the walkway provide some = same general information like all the other places. bronze age, centers of power.. some mended pottery finds are mentioned.
it's almost a drivein, 45 minutes are OK to visit, see the adjacent Giant tomb with reconstructed stela / exedra.
Credit where due - the nuraghic builders knew their stuff, they had to plan in advance to build this.

Outstanding place ranking with Stonehenge and Newgrange. Do see it if you have the chance to do so.

As members of a 24-strong Great Rail Journey’s Group, my wife and myself visited the Nuraghe La Prisgiona site this morning.

Fortunately, we had an excellent guide who explained as much background as she could (ie nobody seems to know for sure why these sites were constructed and for what specific purpose). This significantly enhanced the value of the visit and - without which - I can see visitors just spending 10-15 minutes on a cursory glance and departing the site with very little additional knowledge than when they had arrived.

Also worth mentioning that only 20% of the site has been excavated and it’s anyone’s guess when any of the remaining 80% will follow suit!

Bronze Age settlement in granite. Er. That’s it. Yes, you can try to understand how civilisation progressed. My cynical head made me wonder about how much was original and how much was reconstruction. I don’t think that they had invented cement yet, although the Romans were indeed the first.
Yes. Seeing Bronze Age is interesting.

We had a driver take us all around northern Sardinia and one of the stops was here. I had no idea! So interesting to see these formations, and understand how they were discovered. Hills really, that had been buried over time by winds and dirt, but once excavated they reveal entire villages and the lifestyle associated with this area. It is essentially a self guided tour walking around and into the various structures.

Nuraghe la Prisgione is one of the 9 sites that make up the Arzachena complex located approximately 15 km from Porto Cervo on the Costa Smeralda, well worth the short drive. The two sites here are approximately 1 km apart but easy walks. This Nuraghe is my second best in Sardinia after Nuraghe Sant Antinu. The day we visited was peaceful since we were the only visitors so weren’t distracted by tour bus loads of people ticking another site of their list. There is adequate signage explaining what you are seeing. The Tomba di Giganti Coddu Vecchju is one of the more well preserved sites of its kind and worth the walk. There is a trail that was a bit sketchy due to rain and erosion but it is a simple walk down the paved road to the Tomb. For additional Information on the other sites see reviews of Tomba di Giganti Moru Nuraghe Albucciu and Tiempio Malchittu. There are two other Tomb Sites but both were closed for the off Season.

One of the main reasons for choosing our cruise itinerary to include Sardinia was that there was an excursion to visit nuraghe; the time given to this part of the tour was quite short, but as we were the first coach to the site, it was relatively peaceful. The tower is a remarkable achievement of building engineering considering it is around 4000 years old. The part of the site we were shown was small, but well worth a visit – and our guide was excellent.

Worth a visit - mysterious though don’t expect a lot of information there. Amazing architecture choose wisely if booking more than 1 site here and Cody Vecchju

There are about seven archaeological sites around Arzachena, and this is easily the best if you are short of time.
