Visit "Su Nuraxi", Unesco's world heritage sight and Zapata palais.
When you visit Sardinia one of the must-do things is a trip to the nuragical fortress of Barumini which dates back to 1, 500 b. C. Over 7, 000 stone towers called nuraghi dot Sardinia's landscape, you won't find them enywhere else on Earth; "Su Nuraxi" in Barumini is the biggest and most important one, therefore it has been declared by UNESCO World Heritage Sight.
In walking distance from the site is "casa Zapata", a palais built in the 16th century residence of the noble Zapata family; in 1990, during renovation works, the archaeologists discovered that the palais had been built exactly on top of a nuraghe. The palais hosts a little museum and nearby is the ethnographic museum and the church Immacolata.
This tour can be combined with a walking tour on the Giara plateau, home to the world's only species of miniature wild horses! We can hike the park on the look out for these enchanting creatures.
