The many scattered island of Sardinia Nuraghe deal certainly a prominent place among the monuments left in the basin

Western Mediterranean from various cultures in ancient times there have occurred.

These majestic buildings have a crucial role in the Sardinian landscape, much to impress the visitor's mind as a characteristic of a mysterious and extraordinary land and points the symbol and emblem of an entire people.

"The nuraghi" says Giovanni Lilliu well, distinguished scholar of archeology

Sardinian "mean charm of Sardinia, as well as virgin nature and boundless, beyond the sea. "

Those who are about seven, more or less well preserved, have come to us, but the origin and destruction first of many which are

meeting went, their number had to be certainly greater.

The name of this characteristic monument comes from the word Nurra that means "pile", "accumulation" but also "hollow". And it is perhaps for this double meaning that the term was applied to form

original Nuraghe, a building came up for "accumulation" of large stones with a busy room and indoor dome

Therefore, "hollow".
