Enjoy the remarkable UNESCO World Heritage site of Barumini, with its mystical Nuragic archaeological remains.

Wonderful sights and scenery are yours to savour en route. Make a photo stop at the famous pilgrimage site of Nostra Signora di Bonaria church. Gaze down from Monte Urpinu for stunning panoramic views of Cagliari and the picturesque Poetto beach.

At Barumini, get acquainted with life in prehistoric times as you explore the megalithic Nuragic complex of Su Nuraxi. Unlike any other site in the world, Barumini’s unique archaeology was rediscovered in 1950. Marvel at the stone complexes, built by an ancient community. Discover circular defensive towers in the form of truncated cones built of stone, with corbel-vaulted internal chambers. Historians believe the fortification was strengthened around 500 BC when the Nuragic civilisation became aware of the Carthaginian threat. This is a captivating site and the finest example of prehistoric architecture on the island.
