  • Pietro made me visit the graves keys to this beautiful place, with lots of explanations and background (despite the rain). Nice variety of "domus of janas", ideal to understand some of the civilizations who have preceded us.

  • We came with the intention to know the site and understand its potential for a tour of the Americans. Accompanied by Peter Maddy were thrilled with the site, the explanations, the beauty of the landscape around us. All kept beautifully and scores of Domus de Janas there ready to be discovered, each in its uniqueness! Thanks Peter, we will bring our guests!!!

  • We have been to Montessu to visit the necropolis. ticket 5 euros and accompanied by a guide. The place is charming and very attractive. Read before you begin your visit and give up driving. If you the same person who came to us, didn't you learn anything from her! You will hear a series of superficial information and told as a bedtime story. In addition despite the tombs are about 35 there will only show 5!!! Leave with regret to be got there and I saw almost nothing compared to the wealth of the place ...

  • A site to visit with the right sensibility. Is a dip into our history and culture. Recommended for all adults, but especially to children to give awareness of their past.

  • Gorgeous pre-nuraghic archaeological site with many underground tombs and chapels located in the South western part of Sardinia, in the mining area of Sulcis Iglesientes. Like most archaeological sites is located in a beautiful but exhausting to visit as it is spread over a rocky ridge of a hill, and then stripped almost clear sunlit water. We recommend that you visit that site, but it is essential to equip themselves with footwear from tracking, water and for those who suffer the Sun an appropriate hat.

  • Beautiful archaeological site, you can visit some of the subterranean tombs the largest in Sardinia. The site is large, encompassing an entire Hill and about 35 tombs of various types (well, a furnace, a horizontal extension). You can take advantage of guided tours during every day of the year at various times both morning and afternoon. The guides are very prepared and available. Tickets cost €5 (January 2018) and the guided tour is included.

  • One of the most extensive archaeological site in Sardinia, with regard to the domus de janas whose excavation, in this case, is traced back to the beginning of the 3rd millennium BC. The domus graves in which were deposited were the bones of the deceased who, presumably, were reassembled in a Fetal position in the various cells. There are some very large, with several cells linked together and, in a few cases, however, even on multiple levels. In any case have been subject to changes, which occurred in times even distant from each other and, therefore, there were also various uses reuses, until relatively recently, until the 60 's of the last century. In some cases were used as quarries for recovery of stone material, useful for building artifacts, since this is a site where the volcanic trachyte. In some tombs, placed at the ends of the natural amphitheatre, are visible, especially in low relief, spirals, Wolf's teeth and c.d. signs taurini (which, perhaps more properly, some interpret as a representation of the female sexual). In some tombs, then, there are shells that are considered as representing, in negative, of the female breast. Among the artefacts found there are several stone statues of the "mother". All symbols that represent fertility by virtue of the fact that the types of the graves are proper to worship propitiatory of rebirth. Things to consider that, for this reason, the site were officiated incubation rituals because, especially in the vicinity of the larger tombs and monuments, are visible stones stuck in the ground that delimited spaces used as sanctuaries . There is also some rest by later graves, above ground, made the system defined for "allée couverte" whose evolution, even if not here, produced some "giant's grave". The original site is considered as a place of deposition of individuals belonging to a village whose tracks were found near the current village of Villaperuccio, on the left side of the road leading to Santadi.
