Archaeo tour Alghero

Sardinia is famous for its extraordinary archaeology. The most mysterious periods are the Pre-Nuragic and the Nuragic, which left behind incredible evidence of their civilisations: not just Nuraghe, that is, but also giants’ tombs, sacred springs, and Domus de Jana.

We offer archaeological itineraries to let you know some of the more incredible prehistoric and historic realities of North Sardinia. 

Anghelu Ruju is the second underground necropolis of Sardinia. It was excavated beginning in the third millennium BC and it has been used up to the Roman period. It contains 37 tombs, sculpted with structures that recall the living homes and with numerous magic and religious symbols.

Palmavera, situated inside the Porto Conte Regional Park, is a wonderful example of a Nuragic village. It was developed in 1500 BC. The site includes a closed Nuraghe, circumscribed by a large barbican, and a village with about fifty huts. One of the more notable huts is that of the Reunions, which had both civil and religious functions.

The megalithic complex of Monte Baranta is located on a plateau from which a vast territory could be controlled. The presence of an imposing defensive wall, the remains of huts and a sacred area represented by a megalithic circle, give us a cross-section of the civil, military and religious life of the pre-Nuragic era.
To reach the archaeological site of Monte Baranta, we will do a short hike along the edges of the plateau, enjoying a magnificent view of the agricultural landscape up to the sea of Alghero.
