Genuri, Nuraghe San Marco

Nuraghe San Marco

Mostly built in large basalt blocks, this is a trilobate nuraghe whose excavation works are still in progress. It consists of a central keep, formerly surrounded by the rest of the defensive structure, and three towers – located to south-east, south-west and north-west respectively. The existence of a (probably destroyed) fourth tower on the south-east side has been suggested, too, although no ruins have been identified. The site continued to be frequented in the Punic and Roman period.
