  • 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.
