Overview

Full day tour to discover the prehistoric sardinian, from the final neolithic to the bronze age visiting necropolis, giant tomb and nuraghe. Enjoy a typical Sardinian lunch (optional).

Know More about this tour

With this full day tour you will go through the wonderful panoramic Chia-Teulada road (departing from Chia), already travelled by the ancient Romans and Carthaginian population, passing through little towns like Teulada, Santadi e Villaperuccio. The transfer to the archaeological site takes around 80 minutes.

You will visit this prehistorical ancient necropolis of about 2 kilometers of extension. The site is made up of two areas: the first one includes the ancient graves called "Domus de Janas" (fairies houses), while the second one is called "Su Congianu".
 
There are more than 40 tombs, of various shapes and sizes. Two of the domus are especially important as they contain Neolithic religious symbols. One has a bull symbol sculpted on the entrance wall, as well as other symbols including the eyes and breasts of the Goddess Mother and a false door representing the passage to the other world. The other tomb has horns of various shapes, referring to the cult of the bull-god, sculpted into the ceiling and on the step leading to the entrance of the domus. The pottery found during excavations bears witness to the long use of the necropolis, in the Final Neolithic and the Recent Aeneolithic up to the Early Bronze Age.

After you will discover the amazing Giant Tomb, this name given by local people and archaeologists to a type of Sardinian megalithic gallery grave built during the Bronze Age by the Nuragic civilization. They were collective tombs and can be found throughout Sardinia, with 800 being discovered there.

Before driving to the Nuraghe, a break for the best sardinian food, you will try a typical sardinian meal (optional).

The Nuraghe is the main type of ancient megalithicedifice found in Sardinia, developed during the Nuragic Age between 1900 and 730 BCE. Today it has come to be the symbol of Sardinia and its distinctive culture, the Nuragic civilization. More than 7000 nuraghes have been found, though archeologists believe that originally there were more than 10,000.

Your local guide will be keen to make the tour as personal as possible. He will assist you with his expertise and recall interesting anecdotes for you before driving you back to your hotel.
