OverviewHide
Travel back thousands of years on a guided exploration of the most significant archeological find in Sardinia. A scenic drive through the Campidano plains winds to the village of Villamar and beneath the great castle crowning the hill of Las Plassas. Arrive at the Neolithic Nuraghic Village of Su Nuraxi of Barumini, a UNESCO World Heritage Site first brought to light in 1950. Explore ruins dating back to Sardinia’s Megalithic period. Their significance to the ancients who once inhabited the site remain shrouded in mystery. However, it’s known that the site was later used by the Punics and, after that, the Romans. Marvel at the great central tower surrounded by a four-turret bastion and stroll along the massive outer wall. Witness living quarters, religious centers and meeting areas that once clamored with activity. Afterwards, raise a glass to your discoveries with an exclusive tasting of Sardinian wines.
