“Su Nuraxi” archaeological zone
is open all days of the year and, in accordance with ministerial regulations, you can visit it only and exclusively with a tour leader for security reasons. Indeed, guided tours provide a distance within the Nuragic village during which the main types of dwelling , being part of it, are described and then a tour inside the large towered complex achievable only by corridors and stairs not very easy to walk.
Also for security reasons, in rainy days the archaeological zone may not be accessible or only partially accessible.
For these reasons and also considering the fact that the visit takes place for most of its time outdoors, we suggest you to wear comfortable and sports clothes and particularly:
- In warm time the use of caps, sunscreen and water;
- In winter time the use of waterproof and anti-slip shoes.
Guided tours start every half an hour and last about one hour.
