  • Casa Zapata is an old aristocratic House from the 17th century, which was in possession of the Spanish family Zapata. For years this family owned much land around barumini. The Casa is located in barumini on historical ground, because only one kilometre away is the most important archaeological site of Su Nuraxi, Sardinia and included in the werelderfgoedcanon. During restoration work in the 1990s came a big surprise: under the House went a large nuraghe. That we can see now is the result of an architectural find in order both to preserve the historic building as the historical nuraghe and open up. D.m.v. a walkway with glass side walls we run between the nuragheruïnen through and over it. In showcases are pots, bowls, tools and jewelry from the time of the occupation of the nuraghes exhibited. In that part of the House/museum is a glass floor, so you can watch not only in the display cases, but also through the floor the ruins can see. Even a little scary to walk over it. ... The museum is only opened in 2006. A nice detail is that we were first shown around when buying the tickets in some old parts of the casa, a museum for the family Zapata-for us of course perfectly insignificant ....-but well meaning! ' Look you have quiet around here '-and we wait until we would be brought to the attraction. That was potentially even more interesting! We looked on from both the historical aspect as the beautiful and perfect mode of display and illumination of all artifacts and the preservation of the nurghe and the building. Definitely go check it out. Personally I found this visit more beautiful than the Su Nuraxi itself. Walking the beautiful little church within (Chiesa dell ' Immacula) on the same grounds.

  • Imagine a House kind above a nuraghe is really something extraordinary, and that's what the visitor can be admired at home probably unique in the world, Zapata. Also very beautiful various exhibits throughout the Museum, where you can find lots of information on the nuraghic civilization.
