Built about 4500 years ago, this collective burial chamber is very long, with a series of uprights that were once covered with stones and earth.

Recent reconstruction of this ancient burial site gives some insight into the ancient peoples. I do wonder what happened to the old bodies, when some of the original rocks were carted away as building materials.

I would not go here only to see tomb. Check this place out if you are visiting nearby nuraghe. Also not worth paying, as there is noone at the entrance.

Am not sure it is worth the detour on its own unless you're a fan of archaeological remains. What is more interesting in my opinion is the nearby Narraghe Villaggio. So buy the tickets together at the same office. Hats and sunglasses are a must...More

Dates back to around 4500years ago. It is a long collective tomb with the oldest burials at the back coming forward toward the entrance. Little information on site so a guide is an added bonus.

This tomb was built in two periods. The 'newer' part (1600-1200 BC) with the main grave and central stele being added to the older part (1800-1600 BC). It is a great sight to behold on a hill surrounded by vineyards. We paid € 11.00 each...More

Generally this could be interesting if some more information would be available. Generally there are just stones put in a certain order. The information is half page in English and Italian only.
