Nuraghe of Barumini
The archaeological site of Barumini was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
This site consists of the Nuragic village that developed around a majestic central nuraghe known as 'Su Nuraxi' built in several phases from the 15th century B.C. onwards. It is also responsible for the name of the complex, which was discovered in the 1950s.
Unlike other prehistoric settlements, 'Su Nuraxi' can be visited by walking through the remains of the thousand-year-old village, with the unique opportunity to discover the customs and traditions of its ancient and mysterious people, the Nuragics who inhabited Sardinia nearly 4000 years ago.
