  • With village underground is a seat of the Punic necropolis of Carthaginian origin Sulky dug between the 6th and 3rd century. Were dug authentic room where families buried their loved ones. In modern times these rooms were used by poorer families as homes, "is gruttas" and the abitabti is gruttaius. Today the village has become a tourist destination of interest.

  • Located in the upper part of the country, were the ancient dwellings of citizens used until World War II. Some can be visited and enriched with everyday items used at the time. Not to be missed.

  • Find out which of the ancient Punic tombs have been converted into accommodation, inhabited until few decades ago leaves really surprised. If one adds to this the competence, clarity and great ability to involve user's Guide, I would say that the visit is useful, educational, extremely interesting. In a memorable word.

  • This village is linked to the fact that it is hypogean, then under the ground. Was founded as a necropolis in the so-called Punic times, in the period between the 6th and 3rd century. BC. These were tombs carved into the rock where, with the creation of niches, was the deposition of the deceased adults. In fact, children were placed in the same period, after cremation, within the polls, especially in pottery, in what is called tophet, near the present archaeological museum. These tombs, over time, have been the subject of reuse continue and, in fact, only a few of them have been found of funerary objects. Finally, 80 years of the 20th century, were occupied by families, locally called (even in terms of them derogatory) "gruttaius" (inhabitants of the caves), which used as dwellings and, therefore, many of them have undergone changes and adaptations. Don't forget that it was large families, which the original spaces were tight enough and that took place there also work for the production of handicrafts. Many of these tombs are municipal property and, along with the Ethnographic Museum (Magasinu de su Binu) and strong "On Pari", can be visited with one ticket with the help of the guides of the Coop. Archeotur. It would be desirable to allow the visit to a larger number of the hypogea.
