  • Sant'antioco is intrinsically linked to the underworld and archeological wonders that the days of ancient Phoenician and sulci have characterized the evolution. Between tophet, catacombs and village underground is truly back in time, back to the dawn of the first civilizations who lived in these places, and the village underground has a peculiarity: the caves they've hosted families up to relatively few years ago (if I am not mistaken in the second after the war). Some report still inside glimpses of everyday life that lived (thanks to the foresight of the owners that with pride are keen to keep alive the memory of those within those caves we lived in times of great poverty). An obligatory stop for visitors to Sant'Antioco.

  • Beautiful visit to village underground, the Museum and the Rocca di Sant'Antioco. Thanks to (kind of) we found fascinating things on this island. Structures recovered perfectly. Ticket price for these three visits £ 6 per head and guide included in the ticket! To visit!

  • Arrived in Sant'Antioco visited the village underground, the fortress and the Museum thanks to the guides of the cooperative that runs the hotel and they are very passionate about what they do. The visit to the three sites takes aprox. an hour and a half and the village underground is the most curious. Nice explanation of how over time, until the 80 's, the catacombs were used as homes by peasants.

  • 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.

  • Anthropological and historical testimony unique. Very well maintained and detailed guided tours. The guides create an atmosphere that makes you relive the stories they tell. Must see!

  • The visit takes place only with a guide, even for two people; ours was Immanuel, who explained many things with passion and sympathy. I absolutely recommend a visit to the village, but also to the adjacent Toflet Phoenician cemetery and visit the Cathedral, very old
