  • At first glance a smattering of stones on a promontory overlooking the sea of Sinis. Now it looks like this. (ditto in Greece Sicily etc) Obviously those who are passionate and knowledgeable find interesting these stones, in fact by the compositions of the remains we can understand the various eras in which those walls were built and by whom, or what that hole in the floor could represent, but not an inexperienced visitor. Here they built the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, the Romans and the Spanish. From what I read the place was inhabited until the end of 1100. Then looting and destruction until today. The two columns are clearly reconstructed with pieces by chance, but by scenographic effect. Essential free guides that begin the tour at any time. The ticket price is extremely low and it can be done in conjunction with the Museum of Cabras (very interesting). The visit to the tower that dominates the site does not offer fascinating archaeological landscape but a further 360°. Hat, sunscreen, walking shoes. Water! In summer suggest the morning hours or the sunset. On the site there is also a kiosk that for dubious hygiene could be "the worst bar in Caracas" indecent

  • A piece of history of Sardinia! The remains Phoenicians, Romans, Carthaginians and admire in this archaeological area. In the ruins of Tharros can admire many ancient remains of civilizations, such as those of the Phoenicians. The area is to be visited with a guide who will make you imagine the civilization of that time, including through many pictures of reconstructions made to your computer. A must visit at least once. The Spanish towers, although the most recent other finds have a breathtaking view. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn about the history of Sardinia the ruins of Tharros.

  • Open air museum these remains are not in good condition, but worth a visit, the rate is correct, the visit is quick. In the morning early summer, sublime beach just opposite the site archaeological so very nice after the visit under the Sun!

  • A jump in the remote past of Sardinia, starting from Phoenicians to Carthagians to Romans
  • Unique place in a wonderful sea zon. Archaeological site well maintained, to visit both for sea view but also for the beautiful remains of Phoenician city. Ticket tallest Tower excavation 6 euros. Highly recommended
