Create an itinerary including Nuraghe la Prisgiona
The Nuraghe La Prisgiona is a nuragic archaeological site (occupied from the 14th until the 9th century B.C.), located in the Capichera valley in the municipality of Arzachena Costa Smeralda in the north of Sardinia. It consists of a nuraghe and a village comprising around 90-100 buildings, spread across 5 hectares. Findings from this site are in many cases unique in Sardinia, particularly with regard to decoration and use. Due to the large extent and number of buildings the site is considered unique in North-East Sardinia. There is also some evidence for occupation during Roman and medieval times. The Giants' grave Coddu Vecchiu is located nearby.

  • Bronze Age settlement in granite. Er. That’s it. Yes, you can try to understand how civilisation progressed. My cynical head made me wonder about how much was original and how much was...

  • Interesting sight with a lot of history. Warning though,do not take the 1 km road through the forest to the Giants Tomb or if you do, make sure you have proper shoes and water. Way easier to walk on the main road or take the car, especially if you have a packed day ahead and you need to save time and energy.
  • Very impressive antique village. So well preserved and so many different buildings are located there. It is interesting, in my country, Bulgaria, we have one similar landmark, it is smaller that any one building in the Nuraghe La Prisgiiona. I know, there are very few places like this all over the world and i am happy i had seen two of them.
  • This is by far the best pile of stones in the East that is covered by the group purchase. We did 4 sites in the area. 4Eur for the first then 3Eur for each additional ones is how the billing works. You have to name the ones you want to visit and they print a ticket, each site then scratches out upon entry.
  • Relic from the Bronze Age. The genius of the people who came before
  • Why you'd confine your Sardegna holiday to burning on crowded beaches when the Nuraghe civilisation is a bus or scooter ride away I'll leave others to answer. La Prisgiona is the most awesome ruin in the north of this island but there are many more waiting for you to visit.
