Nuraghe Palmavera

One of the most beautiful archaeological sites in Sardinia, this Nuraghe dates back to 1600 B.C. At the centre stand the remains of a cone shaped structure which once was a beautiful palace. The surrounding ancient village is now reduced to the circular remnants of the stone huts. Of all these, the most interesting is the ‘Reunion Hut’, which, experts say, was the central meeting place for debates and religious discussions. In the middle of the hut one of very few miniature Nuragic towers ever to be found was discovered, almost intact, giving an insight into what the original Nuraghe looked like before modernization. The island of Sardinia counts around 5000 Nuraghe towers, well distributed in all its territories. These archaeological marvels have been found nowhere else in the world but in Sardinia.
