  • Interesting, nothing fancy, is a continuous, which recommend you see, the catacombs of the Basilica of Sant'Antioco. Commits recently, while visiting the country can be also visited the village underground.

  • Combined ticket village underground-ethnographic museum-strong House of Savoy at the modest sum of €4 If under the age of 30 years, with family discounts. The guide is narrated with simplicity and great enthusiasm the fundamentals and history of the vast village underground, even still used by some poor families until the 80!

  • As I wrote on the Archaeological Museum of Sant'antioco, the view at the village underground of the ethnographic museum is a fair integration of the historical course of the Punic city and the impressive testimony of a recent past of misery and dignity. How to clean and highly-trained staff, Barreca. A great pleasure!

  • I was immediately struck by the idea of being able to visit a village underground located on the Western side of the hill topped by the strong sabaudo di Sant'Antioco. The Punic necropolis was dug between the 6th and 3rd century BC by the Carthaginians, dug burial chambers where they buried the members of family groups. During the middle ages the island was attacked by the Arabs repeatedly plundered, thus a part of the inhabitants of Sant'Antioco moved towards more peaceful places like Iglesias, while the shepherds and farmers desecrated the Punic graves that remained hidden to the eyes of the invaders and turned it in their homes. Around the mid-1990s a municipal project allowed the recovery of the ward "caves" and construction of the village underground. You can visit some caves, in my case only 2 and you can see inside fittings type of life back then. I honestly thought that the visit starts going right under existing homes and it lasted a little longer, but the whole thing is finished within half an hour. Overall experience.
