  • 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!

  • 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.
