    Amazing!
    An amazing construction well over 3000 years old but amazingly well preserved. We had a brilliant local guide who walked us round, through and up the nuraghi, explaining its history and construction, but like everyone else, could not explain its function. Definitely a must-see.

    Great nuraghe
    An excellent example of its kind, very impressive, with a defined layout, spaces, corridors, and exterior perspectives. Quite incredible for a 3500-year-old structure. Very good audio-guide via an app, plus an excellent concise booklet. Reasonable shop and cafe.

    The smaller sister of Su Nuraxi di Barumini. But not less impressive.
    Quite a complete Nuraghi (A castle from 2.000 BC), with multiple watch towers. The smaller sister of Su Nuraxi di Barumini. But not less impressive. We preferred the visit of Santu Antine.

A beautiful preserved site that is worth visiting. Santu Antine goes by another name in Sardinian, “Sa domu de su re,” which translates to “the house of the king.” Santu Antine is one of the largest Nuraghe in all of Sardinia.

The central tower used to stand at a height of 23 to 24 meters but now reaches about 16.5 meters. This central tower is composed of three towers stacked one on top of the other. However, all that remains of the third tower is the terrace, which provides incredible panoramic views of the surrounding land. Around Santu Antine, there are also the remains of an ancient Nuragic village. It has been partially uncovered, and 14 circular huts have been unearthed. Inside the huts, ancient Nuragic artifacts have been found, from seats and hearths to niches.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION: Santu Antine is open daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm in the winter, and to 8:00 pm in the summer. Admission fee is €8.
Buy your ticket in the cafe across the road, they will also offer you a brochure. Souvenirs at shop are reasonable priced.

The central tower is visible from a distance and the closer you get the more impressive it becomes. Not only do you wonder how it was built but also what was it used for? Although the guide was very good, even he wasn't sure what the purpose of the building was; a temple, a fortification to be used in time of trouble or what? As the civilisation who built it did not use writing or leave inscriptions, it is a bit of a mystery!
The interior has passages and rooms, a "sacred well" and a large central area. You can explore all over the structure; if you can, climb the steep steps up to the upper levels for spectacular views over the plain where you can spot one or two oither Nuraghe.
There's a nice little cafe across the road from the entrance with good toilets and an outdoor seating area, and a car parking area

As a previous reviewer has said - if you only see on Nuraghe make it this one.
This 3,500 year old building is mind blowing. Firstly it's age, secondly it's construction and thirdly the views from the top. It was a hot day when we visited but lovely and cool inside. You are allowed to explore the whole structure and marvel at the construction. The views of the surrounding countryside from the top are fantastic.
We downloaded the app and this allows you to self guide round the site at your own pace.
It was not busy when we visited.
The entrance price includes the museum in nearby Torralba but we timed it wrong so didn't visit.

Located on a vast plain just off the SS131, this is the most elaborate and detailed of the many in Sardinia. There is no guide but there is an app that gives detailed descriptions of numbered locations with in the site. You are allowed to wander freely throughout the site even climbing the interior stone stairs to the top of the tower for sweeping 180 degree views of the surrounding countryside.

Beautiful and amazing Nuragic site located in the northeast section of Sardinia. We were driving to Orosei and just happened to be driving past it. (Lucky us!). We spent about and hour walking around and through the site. The more we saw the more interesting it became

This is similar to the Losa. The central tower is still over 17 m high and built to last, at either ends are openings that lead to passages behind the angle towers. The entrance leads to the impressive central tholos with its pleasant coolness. The masonry is particularly fine calibre

When it's hot outside, walking through the Nuraghe galleries you immerse yourself in pleasant coolness. looking into every corner of the ancient civilization. From the top points of the object, a breathtaking landscape opens onto the hay rolls leaving the horizon. The complex has a cafe (delicious croissants, pizza, nuts, dried fruit, coffee and drinks), a souvenir shop. Entrance ticket 6 Euro per adult, children under 5 years free
