The most ancient Sardinia monuments
The SANTU ANTINE NURAGHE, also called Sa domo de su Re ("The House of the King") is one of the most majestic nuraghi in Sardinia. The main structure was built around the 19-18th century BC, and the other parts of the nuraghe date back to the 17-15th century BC.
The main tower originally reached a height of 23-24 meters, the highest structure for that period after the Egyptian pyramids.
After the Santu Antine, we'll go to TINNURA, a village of the Planargia region, famous for its wine (Malvasia di Bosa), the artistic weaving and, most of all, because the center is an outdoor Art and Modern Architecture Museum, abounding with murals and various statues by important Sardinia artists.
Finally, we'll reach BOSA, a unique and unspoiled town on the northwestern coast of Sardinia. Surrounded by beautiful, wild countryside, stunning beaches and coastline, Bosa has retained its ancient charm and Sardinian identity and has not suffered the over-development of some of the island's beach destinations.
This is a long excursion that takes the whole day but very interesting and fascinating. There will be several stops along the road:
The first stop is at the Nuraghe Santu Antine, one of the best preserved prehistoric castles of Sardinia
- Then, stop to Tinnura to admire its mural paintings
- Bosa (historic center, the church of S. Peter, the castle of Malaspina).
- Back to the starting point.
